We all know that we need to be active and to eat well to lead a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. Our programme running from 26th February –  21st May, will give you the skills and motivation to achieve a long term and sustainable healthy lifestyle. Doing this properly can improve your hair, skin, sleep patterns as well as help the much wanted inch/weight loss.

We will meet weekly on a Tuesday evening, starting on 5th March at Bodmin Rugby Club from 7-8pm. On 1st June we will celebrate our success in style at Bodmin Jail with a 3 course meal, disco, photo booth, glitz and glamour evening with family and friends.

What you receive for your £25:

  • Access to the 24/7 facebook support group
  • 12 weekly face to face meetings
  • A ticket for the celebration evening (worth £30)
  • £10 voucher to spend on your new glitzy outfit from our Lifestyle shop in Bodmin
  • Chance to win an Elemental Day Spa with tapas lunch for 2 at Bedruthan Hotel for the highest fundraiser

Please note places are limited to 25 people.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this for me?

If there’s a healthier you screaming to come out but you just don’t know how to start, then YES! This is definitely for you. You need to be dedicated to making a long term lifestyle change. This isn’t a quick fix, you’re in it for life.

Do I have to come to every meeting?

Ideally yes but all the things discussed can be sent on to you after the meeting.

Will I starve?

Absolutely not! This is to help you make healthy food choices that are still filling, tasty and satisfying. There will be no “miracle shakes” “magic coffee” or expensive “cleanses”.

How much fundraising do I have to raise?

We ask for a minimum amount of £350. This can easily be achieved by holding a quiz night/bingo evening or something similar. We can discuss ideas with you and support you to achieve this amount.

We also ask that you sell 3 tickets for the celebration evening to friends and family at £30 each.
