Owls visit Clifford House

29 November 2017

Owls duo Jordan Rhodes and Joost van Aken paid a visit to St Luke’s Hospices’ new Clifford House building on Tuesday afternoon.

The pair were shown around the facility, which is open to anyone affected by terminal illness for social purposes, with a wide range of activities available.

The building, which opened in September, does not provide medical care, but in fact gives people the chance to relax, socialise and have fun in a comfortable and supportive environment.

Rhodes and van Aken met with staff and families who use the facility, having photos and signing Christmas messages.

St Luke’s Corporate Fundraising Manager, Jack Kidder, said: “It was a real pleasure to welcome Sheffield Wednesday players and staff to St Luke’s to show them the new services we are now offering at Clifford House.

“Providing a range of fun activities, practical support and advice, relaxation and wellbeing, Clifford House is a beautiful place to spend time for anyone in Sheffield affected by an illness that has no cure, including families and carers.

“The support of Sheffield Wednesday and their amazing fans ensures that the vital work we do at St Luke’s remain available to everyone in Sheffield who needs them.

"Thank you to everyone at the club for helping us continue to care for the people of Sheffield.”

The Owls would like to thank Jack and everyone at St Luke’s for a great visit!
