Swashbuckle with St Luke’s
To celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, St Luke’s Hospice is putting on a pirate-themed fundraising ball this autumn.
Held at Baldwin’s Omega in Brincliffe on September 19th, the Swashbuckle Ball will feature will feature fantastic entertainment, brilliant auction prizes, amazing food and an opportunity to dance the night away.
Hospice events manager David Martin said, “By releasing your inner pirate and being part of our evening you will play a major part in helping us achieve the very best care for the people of Sheffield.”
“But don’t worry if dressing like a pirate isn’t your thing – black tie will do just as nicely.”
St Luke’s Hospice cares for adults with incurable illnesses in the Sheffield area, helping around 1500 patients per year, not including families and carers. While they receive some NHS funding, over two thirds of their income is raised through donations from the public. In 2015, the Hospice is looking to raise £5.6 million total of donations.
Tables are available for individuals or parties of ten or twelve at £60 per person, with a £5 early bird discount before the 10th July.
The Hospice has a full calendar of events planned for the remainder of 2015, with charity skydives, the moonlight walking event Night Strider and the annual Festival of Light on the horizon.
