TELEVISION favourite Julia Bradbury has been named as a new patron of St Luke’s Hospice.
The popular TV presenter grew up in Sheffield and is keen to support the city institution, which last year celebrated its 40th anniversary and is now about to launch a £5 million extension and renovation programme.
“Coming from Sheffield means I have heard so much about the great work that St Luke’s does for Sheffield people,” said Julia.
“Knowing how much St Luke’s means to so many families across the city, it is a pleasure and an honour to be asked to give my support to the hospice.”
St Luke’s director of fundraising and communications Una Moran added: “To have Julia’s support at this most important point in our history is great news.
“As we embark on our refurbishment project, it’s good to know that we have the backing of such a high-profile patron as Julia to help us encourage even more supporters and fundraisers.
“Julia and all our friends across Sheffield understand the importance of the work St Luke’s is doing for people throughout the city and they are as committed as we are to ensuring that work continues.”
