Women’s group backs hospice

Have your say

AN ORGANISATION for businesswomen in Sheffield has chosen St Luke’s Hospice as its charity of the year.

The city’s branch of Soroptomist International has a full calendar of events planned for coming months, including a curry night, a swing night and a fashion show.

A garden party and Come Dine with Me-themed evening have already been held.

Jenny Fern, the Soroptimists’ president, said: “For more than 40 years, the hospice has provided help for many people who suffer from incurable illnesses, while supporting carers and families.

“Without financial assistance from the community, this work would cease.”

Fran Morley, St Luke’s fundraiser, said the Whirlow hospice was ‘grateful’ for the support.
