What is St Luke's Hospice?

St Luke's is a hospice which cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses. Their aim is always to control the patients symptoms, alleviate pain, and give them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge. It costs £6 million per annum to keep St Luke's open, and government funding, via NHS trusts only provides one third of the funds required, which means the Hospice has to raise a staggering £4 million each year to provide this vital end-of-life care.

This challenge was set up by a St Luke's Supporter who has seen first hand, the amazing care given to patients through St Luke's and whilst donations are now closed we would like to thank all our donators for their wonderful contributions.

June Winners

Time to announce the winners of our last challenge - we may only have had a few entries, but we had some gorgeous ones!

Our favourite card last month, and therefore the overall prize winner of the lovely Waltzingmouse Stamps was Louise - No 15 with this gorgeous little row of bunnies in flower pots.  Definately fury and definately cute - we really loved how you popped one of the bunnies up to add a little dimension Louise. 

Our three runners up this month all had great fury creatures featured on their cards with great colouring and strong eye catching designs - your winners badges will be winging their way through cyberspace shortly ladies - so congratualtions to Val, Di and Laura.

You've still got 3 weeks to play along in our new teenage kicks challenge for a chance of another great prize - this month it's a £10 ribbon girl voucher so do get your mojo flowing and join us.  We award prizez on merit by a whole DT vote not a random draw so do give us your best work if you want to win ;-)
