Do you have the nerve to spend a night in Cornwall’s famous Bodmin Jail? Cornwall Hospice Care can exclusively offer you a night to remember!

Bodmin Jail was built in 1779 and was operational for over 150 years, giving it a fascinating and gruesome history. 55 executions were held at various locations throughout the jail between 1735 – 1909, with 24 year old William Hampton being the last prisoner to be hanged on September 20th 1909.

 

Is it for me?

If you are looking for an experience with a difference then this is for you. Whether you are a believer of the afterlife, or a sceptic, you wont fail to feel the nerves in this intimidating building. Please note you must be over 18 to sign up to this event.

What Happens Next?

Starting at 10pm you will be given an exclusive tour of Bodmin Jail. You will be taught the basics of Reiki and energy management by the resident medium before commencing the night in the formidable jail. Various workshops will be held during your time in the jail, giving you the spookiest experience possible. Tea and coffee will also be available throughout the night. Alcohol is not permitted during this event.

Why support Cornwall Hospice Care?

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care we offer to our in and out patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that’s only enough to get us to the 12th March. We rely on the generosity of people like you in Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and visit our 32 shops.

£56 could pay for three hours of unrivalled specialist care from one of our nurses, helping patients who are terminally ill.

£37 could pay for one Lymphoedema appointment to ease swelling and symptoms for someone with cancer.

£23 could pay for an hour with our bereavement counsellor, supporting families  through the loss of a loved one.
