Mum and our #StLukes #Fundraising - #Spencer #Sheffield

This is my lovely Mum, Anne Spencer..... 

"Mum was diagnosed with stage four Lymphoma on the 16th December 2020 at the Hallamshire and was quickly told that they weren’t going to treat her, as the cancer was too aggressive and she wouldn’t survive the treatment. 

"Trying to absorb that information was incredibly distressing for mum and for us and when they told us on the 23rd December that she only had a few days to live, mum desperately wanted to get transferred to St Luke’s or to go home. Because mum was on such high levels of oxygen by this point the Hallamshire ruled out the possibility to go home so we started trying to get her to St Luke’s via a referral but time was obviously of the essence. 

"I rang St Luke’s on Christmas Day to beg them to take her, as she so desperately didn’t want to die in hospital. I’m not saying that her medical care at the Hallamshire was lacking particularly but she spoke about feeling abandoned and uncared for and she felt as though they had put her in a room and told her to die quietly without a fuss. David from St Luke’s called me back on Christmas Day afternoon and was utterly wonderful, he made me instantly feel as though he cared about her and that she could get her dying wish in getting the transfer to St Luke’s to hopefully get some peace and to feel like she was cared for and comfortable. David called me back again on Christmas Day evening to say that they had a bed and that they would liaise with the Hallamshire to get her there on Boxing Day, which they did. 

"Telling mum on Boxing Day morning that she could go to St Luke’s felt like the greatest gift I had ever been able to give her, she was so incredibly thankful, and immediately felt a sense of relief. At St Luke’s they spent the whole of Boxing Day making sure she was comfortable and listening to her and her wishes to want to feel loved and cared for. 

"Mum died the next day, peacefully in a beautiful room. 

"The feeling you get when you walk into St Luke’s is one of peace, and serenity. It is presented as a five star hotel, and everyone there makes you feel heard and cared for, even us who went in to see mum after she had died. I only wish mum had had a few more days there so that she could have truly appreciated the difference in care to that she experienced in the hospital environment, but she got there and she felt so incredibly grateful for what they achieved in the small amount of time that she was there. 

"I will be forever thankful to David for the way he spoke to me on Christmas Day, I knew he was going to do everything he could to make the move happen and his manner and professionalism was everything that I needed to hear in my time of need. We are therefore raising funds for this amazing charity, and hope that people will want to join us in the challenge to remember my lovely mum.”

Help us Raise Money for St Luke's Hospice with our #Spencers125k

You may have heard that my lovely Mum died on the 27th December 2020 after a very quick return of Lymphoma that took her from us within just ten days. 

Mum was desperate to escape the Hallamshire to get to St Luke’s Hospice, which she did and died within 24 hours of being there.

St Luke’s was always close to her heart and we know too many people that have ended their days in their wonderful care. 

So, we at Spencers have decided that we will run 125km each in February in aid of St Luke’s, which is the distance from Mum’s house to Old Trafford, where she loved to go with my Dad to watch their team and where they had season tickets for many years. 

We invite you all to join in and attempt to hit a 125km target by running / walking / cycling / horse riding the same distance throughout February, or just to donate to this wonderful cause by supporting our efforts. 

All collections on Mum’s behalf will go to St Luke’s via this JustGiving page. Thank you so much for supporting us, Mum, and this wonderful charity. Love you Mum.

Merry Christmas!

We are all a little pleased to see the back of 2020 but some lessons have been learned; appreciate what you’ve got, remember life is short, love those in your circle, appreciate your boss, inhale the time you get with loved ones, only teachers can teach our children properly, the NHS is our saviour, never underestimate how privileged we are if we are loved, have a roof over our head and have food to eat, travel is a luxury and appreciating where we live should not be taken for granted, hairdressers are a necessity, sport is more than just a game, it’s a way of life, in hot water we realise how strong we can be, it does take a village to raise children, our elderly should be protected and nurtured, life is precious, remember that everyone is trying their best.

Looking forward to a happy and healthy 2021!

Have fun in your Xmas Bubbles!

Covid-19 Blog - Taking something positive from 2020

 

Our lovely Rachel in Accounts finds some positivity for 2020.... 

"It goes without saying really that this year has been “different”. Every person in the country and the majority of the world has been affected in some way by Covid-19, what has it meant for me personally?

"I had some symptoms myself back in March and I went from staying away from work to work closing its doors to the public, and then to staff, and then to seeing my work colleagues only on Zoom meetings or by communicating on our work WhatsApp chat. Not surprisingly the world suddenly seemed a very different place with us awaiting the latest news announcements and more and more of our freedom to move around being restricted. I sobbed on Mother’s Day at not getting to see my own mum or my grown up children, but I had a nice chat on the phone with my son and daughter and everyone was in the same situation, I was one of many mums trying to put on a brave face and not be too disappointed.

"Having said that, the year has been one for more time to take up new interests, read about places we want to see when things return to normal (whenever that is) and appreciate the things we do have. I am lucky to have lovely family to talk to be it in person, on the phone or via a video call.  I have dreams for the future and more money in the bank, with holiday plans being on hold. It helps that we have had lovely weather, which I enjoyed from the comfort of my garden. Every privilege returned has been more appreciated and less taken for granted than before, and the stories of people helping others throughout this have been heart-warming.

"I don’t think life for the generation who have lived through the pandemic will ever by quite the same as before and I hope we can all take something positive from 2020 and soon we will enjoy some of the things this year have eluded us this year."

Covid - how has it changed things for the better? Tom of Spencer has his say

What has changed since the first lockdown?  

"Although COVID has undoubtedly been a troublesome time for us all, in a perverse kind of way it has helped me to appreciate things that I probably took for granted before it happened.

"Beforehand, I think we were all guilty about taking our relationships for granted, but having not seen my family and a lot of my friends since Christmas, it made me realise how much I had missed them when restrictions were eased.

"The pint with my mates on a Friday night, the brew with my grandparents, the buzz of going to Hillsborough and the excitement of looking forward to a weekend away are still sorely missed, but I know when they do come round again (and they will), I will not take them for granted.

"I have discovered new music, learnt new skills, read more books and been able to break away into things that I may have not been able to do in the rat race of days gone by before all of this.

"The negatives of this wretched disease far outweigh the positives – there is absolutely no denying that. But it has given me a chance to reflect on what really is important in this crazy old world we live in and for that, I will be thankful."


Tom is in our Lettings Team and has worked with us for some time now - we don't know where we would be without him.
