Meeting the winner of our Christmas raffle to give them their £2,000 cheque is a real highlight of the festive season at St Luke’s.
Our winner Mrs Shobbrook visited our specialist unit at Turnchapel with her daughter Caroline this week. Over tea and mince pies, they shared with us special memories of Ken, Mrs Shobbrook’s husband of 58 years and Caroline’s father, who was cared for at the unit and passed away there.
Speaking with great affection of Ken’s kind nature, his ability to always see the funny side and his ‘quiet rebelliousness’, they also praised the care our team gave Ken and the family.
Mrs Shobbrook, a long term supporter of our charity, said: “Warm, comforting and very caring, St Luke’s helped take our fear away.”
Congratulations to Mrs Shobbrook and the winners of our other raffle prizes!
