To ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and customers, our shops will NOT be accepting donations for the time being.  Our shops do not have the storage to enable us to embargo donations for 72 hours locally for safety, before sorting and getting ready for sale.

To keep everyone safe, the government advice is to wear a face-covering when visiting shops.
We are encouraging their use in your local Cornwall Hospice Care shop but understand that there are valid exemptions.  Please, if you are able, wear a face covering when shopping with us.

Each shop also now has a hand sanitiser station, social distancing measures, till screens etc. to safeguard our staff, volunteers and our customers.  


Our 4 designated Donation Centres at Truro, Holmbush St Austell, Bodmin and Bude continue to accept your generous donations.  You can find detailed information about their locations and opening hours HERE.

*Please do not leave donations at any of our shops – please use the 4 Donation Stations during their opening hours only.*

About Cornwall Hospice Care

We are a Cornish charity that provides specialist care for people with terminal illnesses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our clinical teams support in and out patients and their families at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle and in Cornwall’s hospitals, care homes and in the community.

We also run a 24 hour advice line for other healthcare professionals and share our knowledge through education programmes supporting the healthcare workers of the future.

Thank you!

Every year it costs over £5.3 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients, their families and their carers.

Only 19.1% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners who in the last financial year gave us £1 million.

The rest is raised by the people of Cornwall, people like you, who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our shops.


St Julia’s Hospice is rated Outstanding.

Mount Edgcumbe Hospice is rated Good.
