Sheffield-based charity, St Luke’s Hospice is one of our main benefiting charities at Owls in the Park and the organisation is busy preparing to meet supporters at Sunday’s event.
The charity will be bringing along the ‘99th garrison’ – a Star Wars based costume group who will be available for photos with fans to help raise funds and awareness for the charity.
Their unique attraction joins more than 20 other charities on the day, including Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, The Royal Society For The Blind and Support Dogs.
Owls in the Park is on Sunday 19 July, 11am – 5:30pm in Hillsborough Park.
St Luke’s Hospice cares for people aged 18 and above throughout Sheffield who have incurable illnesses, controlling their symptoms, alleviating pain, and giving them the best possible quality of life – all free of charge.
Every year St Luke’s cares for around 1,400 patients, and supports their families and carers - 5,000 people in total - at its In Patient Centre, its Therapies and Rehabilitation Centre and in the wider community.
To maintain this level or service, however, the hospice has to raise £5.6 million annually – and to achieve that it depends on the generosity of the people of Sheffield.
