It’s always exciting when we open a new charity shop, but this one in Plymouth city centre feels extra special!Cutting the ribbon at our new store in New George Street – where we’re selling high-quality pre-loved homeware - has taken us back to the very road where, back in the late 80s, our retail success story began with the launch of our first-ever shop.Then, as now, our fantastic supporters kept us well stocked with their generous donations of high-quality items, knowing everything we sell supports our compassionate care and support for local families.Our new shop is also selling clothes, books and bric-a-brac, so why not pop in next time you’re in town? You’ll find us just past the Piazza, between Greggs bakery and the corner unit that formerly housed Poundland. Read about how it all began for the St Luke's charity shop we all know and love in our latest blog - ... See MoreSee Less

Contrary to the popular song, these sisters are NOT doing it for themselves!Holly Fulford and Chloe Reeves from Looe have taken on our epic Malawi Challenge, raising much-needed funds to help our team care for more families like their own. The sisters were inspired to go for the challenge, which includes hiking up 10,000ft Mount Mulanje, as a way of giving back to our charity after we looked after their mum Beverly in 2018 before sadly, she died.Holly said: “Mum meant the world to us. She spent the last 11 days of her life at Turnchapel, where not only was she given amazing care, the team made sure we always felt welcome as a family, even letting us stay over.” Find out more about what motivated Holly and Chloe - as well as their fellow adventurers, Sophia Wilson from Torpoint, Claire Lemasurier from Tavistock, and Jackie Giles and Lewis Philips from Plymouth – to take fundraising for our charity to new heights. They’ve raised over £28,000 between them already!Read the full story in our latest blog: Expeditions The Cornish Times The Cornish Gazette ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful fresh flowers can be the perfect way to create a personalised tribute when someone dies, however the environmental impact of them is not so rosy.Sadly, the majority of floral arrangements will end up in landfill within 24-48 hours of a funeral, including non-biodegradable parts like florist foam, plastic, ribbon and cellophane. How we care for the environment is fast becoming an important aspect of all decisions we make, especially as the decisions made today affect our future generations. Therefore, when planning the funeral of a loved one, instead of asking for flowers, perhaps ask for donations to St Luke's instead? We would be privileged to accept such donations made in lieu of flowers. They are a special way to pay tribute to your loved one while helping us reach more people across the community who are affected by a life limiting illness.We know planning a funeral can be a tough time, so get in touch today to see how we can help ...

"Joining St Luke's is like walking into a hug."These are the words of Specialist Nurse Ali - who joined us last year - and which perfectly sum up the warm welcome that awaits newcomers to our friendly, supportive team.When her mother died unexpectedly, Ali was left heartbroken, her pain compounded by her mum not receiving the high level of care she deserved in her final days. It was a profound experience that planted in Ali, a highly experienced nurse, the passionate desire to one day work in palliative and end of life care, reducing patients’ pain, putting them at ease and helping to ensure that their death is dignified and peaceful.Ali has now found her calling and is finding her work rewarding in every way, caring for patients in their own homes.Ali said: “When I arrive on their doorstep and they see the St Luke’s uniform, the relief patients feel is often palpable because they know they’re in good hands. It’s a privilege to make a difference to them at such an anxious time – I find it incredibly rewarding.”Read Ali's story on our blog you've been inspired by Ali then take a look at our current job vacancies to see if any are right for you. You can also set an alert so you're among the first to know when new opportunities come up. ... See MoreSee Less
