£1,000 raised for St Luke’s Hospice

A local gym has raised over £1,000 for St Luke’s Hospice.

PureGym, in City Centre South Sheffield, took part in a ‘spinathon’ for two hours to raise the money.

St Luke’s Hospice care for around 1,700 people each year through their ‘In Patient Centre’ as well as providing treatment at the home of the patient.

Su Hemming, Head of Marketing and Communications at St Luke’s Hospice, said: “Every penny that is raised for St Luke’s, be it through running a marathon, walking the 3 peaks, shaving your head or spinning on a bike, goes straight to the people of Sheffield who need it most at some of the most challenging times of their lives.”

The money raised will help the hospice care for terminally ill people and their loved ones through their community nursing team, In Patient Centre, Active Intervention Centre and their latest facility which is centred on wellbeing and activities.

Helene Garnett, a manager at PureGym, said: “We wanted to give something back to the community, St Luke’s do amazing work within the community so we thought what a great way to give back to them by getting our members involved.”
