Terry's Bed Appeal

Thank you!

We launched Terry’s Bed Appeal in October 2020 with a target of raising £250,000 to help keep beds open at our two hospices.

We are absolutely delighted to announce that, thanks to your incredible generosity, the appeal has now surpassed the target and £283,600 has been raised.

Upcoming Events

We have some exciting new virtual events to enjoy through lockdown and beyond!

Our Online Charity Art Auction featuring a bust of the late Captain Sir Tom Moore has opened early due to public demand.

The Cornwall Hospice Care fundraiser has attracted more than 100 lots and was due to get underway on 14th March. However, interest around the bust and a work by Ken Howard OBE RA has prompted us to start receiving bids now!

We’re adding items all the time thanks to the generosity of Cornish artists and our supporters.  There’s something for everyone with suggested sale prices from £10 to £5,000.  The auction closes at 8pm on 21st March 2021.

Or if getting on your bike and pedalling the miles is more your thing, how about joining us on our virtual ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats?  You’ll have all year to cover the 874 miles local to you, with fun and support from us along the way, a beautiful medal at the end of your route and of course the satisfaction that you’ve helped fund our keyworker teams.

Virtual Run Falmouth Half Marathon

For all you runners out there, our Run Falmouth Half Marathon is going Virtual just for 2021!  Run the 13.1 miles local to you in one go between 14th and 31st March, record it and send to us – it’s as simple as that!  In return, you’ll be helping to fund our keyworkers at this difficult time and of course, there will be a commemorative medal coming your way too.

Our Services

Our hospices remain open 24/7, providing 20 beds for terminally ill patients who need us.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, patients staying at our hospices can still be visited, however we have had to change our policy and introduce some additional guidance for those wishing to visit their loved ones.  Click the button to see our latest advice.

Please remember that all our shops AND donation centres are closed as a result of the current national lockdown.  Please do not leave any donations outside our premises as our staff are not there to deal with them and we will have to pay for disposal.

Cornwall Hospice Care Covid-19 statement

Cornwall Hospice Care has ensured Covid-19 risk assessments have been carried out in all areas of our charity. Where required, adjustments have been made to ensure working environments are as Covid secure as is practically possible.

The safety of our patients, their families, our staff, volunteers, customers and supporters is paramount. We work closely with all relevant authorities and advisory bodies to ensure we are following current guidelines, implementing any changes as necessary.

Thank you!

In these challenging times our world has changed in many different ways. However, the one constant has been the care we provide at our two hospices that have remained open 24/7 admitting patients to our 20 end-of-life and specialist palliative care beds.

As a charity we rely heavily on the support of the people of Cornwall, people like you, who leave us legacies, support our virtual fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our shops and donation centres.

Thank you, we need you now more than ever!
