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.

It's time for a new month long challenge again - are you ready to get your stash out and play - we do hope so as our numbers seem to be dwindling.   This month we hope you find our challenge easier - we just want to see couples - not necessarily of the romantic kind (although Anniversary and Wedding Cards are amongst our best sellers in the donated cards).  As long as you card features a couple in some form - people or animals - it all counts.

This month we are again being sponsored by one of our regular sponsors - the fabulous Lili of the Valley and we have two super cute boy stamps up for grabs.

Here's the inspiration parade this month - a whole host of couples from the furry, to the feathered and scaly with even a couple of humans thrown in for good measure - check out the links to our fabby DT's personal blogs for more details:

So now, it's over to you - link your couples up below and do tell your friends to play along too - we love to see new players join in the fun.
