Spectacular fair to celebrate birthday

Have your say

ONE of Sheffield’s best-loved charities is looking forward to a spectacular summer fair – organised to celebrate its 40th birthday this year.

This year’s annual event will be extra special as St Luke’s Hospice marks four decades of providing care and support for patients across the city.

The fair takes place in the hospice grounds in Little Common Lane on June 11.

Attractions will include games, rides, bric-a-brac, cakes, toiletries, plants and second hand book stalls, as well as a hog roast and Kelham Island brewery tent.

The fun begins at 1pm and it costs just £1 to get in.

No parking is available on site, but a park-and-ride scheme operated by First and Tesco will offer free journeys from the Tesco Abbeydale Road car park throughout the afternoon.

Anna Sheppard, hospice events fundraising manager, said: “Last year’s fair raised more than £12,000 and attracted a record number of visitors.

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary we aim to shatter that record and give all our guests an afternoon to remember.”
