Our resilience and revival

‘Our resilience and revival’ captures the story of the toughest period in our charity’s 40-year history. Far from celebrating our Ruby Anniversary, we faced dark times.  Covid-19 forced us to close shops, stop our fundraising activities and concentrate on keeping our key workers safe and our hospices open 24/7 for those end of life patients who needed us. In this detailed and moving account, we review the extraordinary issues we faced and the amazing way in which our staff and volunteer teams fought back in the financial year 2020/21.

With our income generating activities having been severely hampered we’re saving money by sharing this digital version rather than printing copies and sending them out by post.

Previous Editions

Previous versions of ‘Our Impact’, our annual publication are available below. They show the work we have done across the county and the many ways in which we make a difference to terminally ill patients and their carers, family and friends.

Our 2019-20 version was titled ‘This is what it takes’ and looked at what it takes to deliver our care. It features Keith and Pat’s story.

Our 2018-19 edition included a range of heart-warming stories, including that of broadcaster and writer Judi Spiers who is an Ambassador for adult hospice care and for Cornwall Hospice Care in particular. You can watch a short film she made with us by clicking on her picture below right.
