The Company of Cutlers in Hallamshire

Master Cutler Challenge 2016

The Master Cutler, Craig MacKay has launched his Challenge to raise for St Luke's and Rotherham Hospice. Funds raised this year will help them to maintain their community palliative care teams so that more people have the choice to die at home. Around 70% of people want to die at home, but only around 20% in our region do. This year, our charities want to change that. Because home is more than the walls that surround us - it is familiarity and comfort; full of the people and memories we cherish. We all know what home means, so let's make the choice to live life to the end, at home, a possibility for all.

For more details and to register go to Master Cutler's Challenge 2016
