Why support Celebration of Life?

This year’s event is extra special as we are celebrating our 50th anniversary; half a century of caring for Sheffield. Every donation towards Celebration of Life helps us to care for local people and their families, just like Katie's.


Katie and Jane's story

For Katie Jackson, Celebration of Life is an important way to honour the memory of her mum Jane, who our Community team had the privilege of caring for at home after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in October 2019.

Wanting to give back for the care her mum received, Katie ran the 2022 Sheffield Half Marathon, raising almost £5,000 for St Luke’s and is also supporting Celebration of Life. Click here to read Katie's story in full.
