Top gong for St Luke’s Hospice

Have your say

ST Luke’s Hospice has been nominated for one of the top prizes at the 2012 Sheffield Business Awards.

The Sheffield Chamber of Commerce awards ceremony, one of the biggest business events of the year, will be held at Ponds Forge on January 19.

St Luke’s has been nominated for the Adsetts Partnership Third Sector Award.

“This is the first time the Chamber has included a Third Sector award and to be nominated means so much,” said the charity’s Margot Walker.

“The past 12 months have seen an incredible change of direction in the way we develop financial support.

“We have stepped up our fundraising, in particular with the Starlight Walk, which has substantially raised the profile of the hospice and increased public engagement.

“We have also expanded our retail operation and the nine shops have increased their revenue year on year.”
