St Luke’s Hospice is asking its supporters to join the charity for a special socially distanced Celebration of Life.

The popular annual summer event usually take place in the beautiful St Luke’s gardens at Little Common Lane.

But following a year of pandemic restrictions, the celebration is now set to go online for the first time.

And organisers are once again asking supporters to stay safe, stay home and celebrate the special date in their own homes and gardens.

For supporter Sarah Jabir, Celebration of Life is an important way to honour the memory of her mum Wijdan Issa who became a St Luke’s patient in 2018 when she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

“The service St Luke’s offers to people living with a terminal illness in Sheffield is honestly incomparable to anywhere I've ever seen,” said Sarah.

“St Luke's managed to make the worst time of our lives a little bit more bearable and we're so grateful for everything they did and so amazed by the incredible people who work there and put a smile on peoples' faces every day.”

As ever, the celebration will include the opportunity to donate and dedicate a St Luke’s daisy in memory of a loved one. All dedications received before July 12 will be displayed in the St Luke’s Book of Celebration online.

But St Luke’s also hope that supporters will host their own Covid safe events at home.
