elcome to our Open Gardens Scheme 2012. This year, there are 30 dates in the calendar to celebrate St Luke’s 30th Anniversary. Garden gates will open throughout the year to members of the public to help raise much needed funds for the Hospice. We are sure that you will enjoy visiting these gardens as much as we did and we hope that you will be inspired to go along and see as many as possible. Each one is a delight to explore and your visit will be helping to keep the good work of St Luke’s going. St Luke’s Hospice, Plymouth is a registered charity that relies heavily on charitable giving. St Luke’s provides specialist care for more than 3,200 patients every year. Government funding is limited, so we must raise at least £4.5 million each year. Therefore, your support is invaluable.

“Celebrating 30 years of quality care” In 2012, St Luke’s will celebrate a new milestone as the Hospice enters into its fourth decade of care for patients from across Plymouth, South West Devon and East Cornwall. We have been caring for thousands of terminally ill patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for the past 30 years. Our passion and dedication to offer dignity and choice has never faltered. Our vision is to provide the very best of care to those with a life limiting illness whenever and wherever they need it. St Luke’s cares for people with serious illnesses such as cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, multiple sclerosis and chronic lung disease. Statistics show that 1 in 5 people in this area will develop a terminal illness. Subsequently there is a growing need for specialist palliative and end of life care. In order to keep the Hospice open, we have to raise at least £5.5 million every year from the communities we serve. Since 1982, we have felt a strong presence of support from the community; their support has always been and will continue to be very important. We appreciate the many partnerships, sponsors, volunteers, loyal friends, advocates, patients and families we’ve had the pleasure to know during the last 30 years. It’s an honour to pause, and simply say a big thank you to everyone for their support.

St Luke’s

Hospice Plymouth

Throughout 2012, St Luke’s Hospice has planned a host of additional exciting fundraising events, in keeping with the ‘30’ theme. We’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you a year of unforgettable activities to raise the vital funds needed to keep the Hospice doing what it does best.
