To mark our 40th year celebrations our friends at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park are creating a new ‘Anniversary Garden’ that will be home to 40 very special Camellias. They’ll form part of the estate’s national collection of Camellia’s, the largest in the country. Love to Remember gives you a rare opportunity to be part of this new garden, offering you the chance to plant a Camellia in memory of someone you hold dear.
Join our Largest Cream Tea Party!
Help Cornwall Hospice Care bring the Guinness World Record for the largest cream tea party to Cornwall.
The 1940s themed afternoon tea party taking place on Saturday 20th June in the Exhibition Hall at The Royal Cornwall Showground will be a celebration like no other as Cornwall Hospice Care marks 40 years of providing specialist care in Cornwall.
Celebrating 40 Years of hospice care for Cornwall
2020 is a very special year for our charity as we mark 40 years of providing hospice care in Cornwall. Our Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell first opened it’s doors in 1980. We’ll also be celebrating 21 years since the dedicated unit at Hayle – our St Julia’s Hospice – was opened too.
Starting this month with our 40 Voices concert, we’ll be celebrating throughout the year in lots of different ways. Join us in marking 40 years and help us plan for 40 more!
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.
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.
