Dinner Delights

Dinner Delights is an exciting new way to fundraise for Cornwall Hospice Care.

Host a meal for friends or family in June 2018 for a donation to our charity.

We have some exciting invites, recipes, decoration and game ideas for you to make it an unforgettable evening.

The best part is you can do whatever you want! From a black tie 3 course dinner to a fancy dress tapas night or even a beach BBQ.

We’ll provide balloons, buckets and Gift Aid envelopes for your dinner guests to make a donation.

Need some inspiration?

We’ll be adding recipes from a Cornwall Hospice Care chef soon!

Food thoughts

  • BBQ Desserts – Campfire Cones – waffle cones filled with fruit/marshmallows/chocolate. Wrap in foil and warm on the BBQ, top with cream or ice cream when opened
  • Picnic – Mini frittatas – use any leftover meat or veg as a filling!
  • Why not make it fancy dress to suit your food theme?
  • Ask your friends and family to bring a bottle!

  • Beer barrow – fill a wheelbarrow with ice to hold your drinks
  •  Make your own bar – screw some wooden pallets together to make your own temporary bar area
Frequently Asked Questions

How does this raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care?

Your dinner guests need to be asked to make a donation in the Gift Aid envelopes that will be provided.  You can suggest that this can be a way of scoring their enjoyment of the evening, or that people could donate the amount that they would usually pay if they went out for a meal!

Could I do a beach BBQ?

Yes, of course you can! Gather your friends for a formal sit down meal or relaxed meal. Wherever and whenever suits you!

Do I have to let you know I'm taking part?

Yes please! That way we can send you anything you’ll need to make your event a success.

Reflections - Trebah Gardens

Show more

Reflections - Trebah Gardens

We would like to invite you and your family and friends, to join us at the beautiful Trebah Gardens near Falmouth, for our moving and supportive remembrance event.

A gerbera flower carries individual messages of memory which will be placed on a specially made raft. With gentle background music and some words of comfort, we stand together to watch as the raft is paddled away. (Weather and sea conditions permitting.)

To take part and make a donation to this event, please click on the red “Take Part at Trebah” button on this page.  We would encourage you to register with us in advance, so that if you are planning to join us on the evening we will ensure we have enough flowers for everyone.

If you are not able to join us, but would like to add your gerbera and message to the raft, please click on the red “Take Part at Trebah” button and we will ensure your flower is included.

Entry to Trebah Garden is free from 4pm and the walk down to the beach takes around 20 minutes.  Due to the topography of the garden disabled access requires a suitable motorised vehicle.

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.

Mines & Mineral Railways Cycle

Mines & Mineral Railways Cycle

This popular Cornish randonnée is now in its 23rd edition in its familiar dual format: A 67km route on the tarmac for the roadies and a 66km parallel off road route for the mountain bikers, which is 90% off-road and has some technical bits. Starting in Carharrack, both routes trace the now scenic industrial landscape of the Copper Kingdom and the Great Flat Lode.

Click here to enter online or email Simon. For further information including the route, click here. Please note, you should be an experienced cyclist with both fitness and stamina.

This is not a race but a touring event. It is a test of fitness and navigational skills through country lanes and quiet roads, but also includes some short stretches of busier roads. A detailed route sheet is provided within the entry fee. There is a medal for successful riders.
