Margaret’s special birthday gift

There was the party, the cake and the cards…but one thing Margaret Dalton didn’t receive as she celebrated her 90th birthday was a gift.

But that’s because she decided it's better to give than to receive – and that St Luke’s should get the present!

Margaret, who lives in Millhouses, asked guests not to buy gifts when they attended a party organised by friend Julie Szurko.

Instead, they were all encouraged to make donations towards our care, raising a final total of £335.

“Margaret has made a huge influence on the people in her life and more than 100 people attended her party,” said our Community Fundraising Assistant Noni Bryson.

“It was a lovely gesture on Margaret’s part that she should share her special day with us in this way.”

If you'd like to fundraise for us, please email the Community Fundraising team or call 0114 235 7553 to brainstorm the different ways in which you could raise money towards our care.
