Chris Wilder unveils local fundraiser for St Luke’s Hospice

Totley Pharmacy’s donation station for St Luke’s Hospice was opened to the public on Friday by the Sheffield United boss.

This is the third year running that the Totley based pharmacy has supported St Luke’s, a hospice specialising in care for terminally ill patients throughout Sheffield. It also marks the continued sponsorship of Sheffield United by Totley Pharmacy.

Chris Wilder, who has led United to promotion and continues to maintain a championship promotion push this season, described it as ‘very important that we recognise local charities raising money for a good cause like this.’

He continued; “Being from Sheffield myself there’s obviously a connection. Unfortunately, my father in law passed away a year and a half ago and spent his last days in St Luke’s, so I know how special it is and what a fantastic job they do in the City of Sheffield and the surrounding areas of taking care of people in difficult times.”

Many locals attended the opening of the fundraiser, contributing clothes and money, and looking for photo opportunities with their United hero. Patrick Connolly, a veteran Blades fan, thought it was ‘fantastic’ that Mr Wilder came here in the middle of the season.

Mr Connolly went on to say; “I have donated to St Luke’s in the past, but this is another opportunity, and it’s great to meet such a fantastic manager from the club I have supported for decades.”

St Luke’s hospice is heavily reliant on charity, only receiving 25% of its funding from the NHS. Peter Hartland, one of the hospice’s chief executives, described events like these as ‘integral,’ and was ‘grateful to every single person who contributes.’

Tajinder Singh, the owner of Totley pharmacy for the past 23 years is proud of their continued community work with local organisations and schools including funding a local walking football tournament.

Mr Singh stated; “As opposed to just being a business, we do try to make it about caring for the community, caring for people.”

Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
