We are delighted to announce that TODAY we begin to slowly and carefully begin to open the doors on some of our shops for you to browse and purchase from us once again, starting with our St Blazey and Holmbush square shops!  Full details of the first phase of shops to re-open is shown right.  You can also see more details of open shops on our Shop Finder page HERE.

Each shop now has a hand sanitiser station, social distancing measures, till screens and the like to safeguard our staff, volunteers and our customers.  To begin with our core opening hours will be 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday and we may need to close for lunch depending on staff availability.  Please bear with us – when we’re able to do more we will as long as it’s safe and effective for us to do so.

To ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and customers, our shops will NOT be accepting donations for the time being.  

Our 4 designated Donation Centres and Mobile Donation Points have been incredibly successful and so we will continue to accept your generous donations through these points.  You can find information about how to donate to us HERE.

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

We're here for you

Our Community Services venues are temporarily closed, but we are still here for you.  You can also call our team to arrange a telephone or video support call on 01726 829874, visit our self help page or join our Community Friendship Cafe on Facebook.

Ways to Support Us

Virtual Events for July

Following on from the amazing response we had to Your Marathon Your Pace and Tour de Cornwall, there are some great ways for you to support us during July, at your pace!

We’ve done a marathon, we’ve done a cycle – so we just had to add Your Swim Your Way!  Swim 2.4 miles or paddle 13.1 miles (SUP, kayak,canoe) through the month of July.  Make a splash and raise some cash to help fund our key worker hospice teams.

And if you missed out on our previous virtual events, don’t worry – you can sign up to complete our Ironman Triathlon Challenge through July and earn your own special medal.  Every participant helps to make a difference to the families we care for.


Coast to Coast along The Saint’s Way

Join us in September to follow the ancient Saint’s Way paths from Padstow to Fowey.

You can walk or run, over one day or a few miles at a time, throughout September.

Our hospices have remained open 24/7 throughout Covid-19 with full beds – help us continue to be there for our patients and their loved ones.

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.
