Boscastle Buoys' Story

The Boscastle Buoys formed in around 2009 after a group of locals, mainly from Boscastle discovered that as well as sharing a drink in the local pub, the Napoleon Inn in Boscastle, they also enjoyed singing.  They were originally called the Boscastle Boys until one of their members came up with the idea of changing it to Boscastle Buoys to represent a buoy in the sea, with Boscastle being a fishing village.

One of the Buoys was treated and supported by Cornwall Hospice Care’s Mount Edgcumbe Hospice and has since died.  As he received such great care the Boscastle Buoys pledged to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care and collect donations wherever they sing.

“We want to shake the bucket for Cornwall Hospice Care

With their compelling repertoire of sea shanties and traditional Cornish songs, the team raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care. David Pimm, one of the singers, explains; ‘We sing at events all round North Cornwall and when we do we shake a bucket in support of Cornwall Hospice Care.  As well as singing in their local pub, the Boscastle Buoys are also asked to sing throughout Cornwall.  Rog explained; “We are often asked to perform at a certain venue and we say, well, can we bring the bucket along? We want to shake the bucket for Cornwall Hospice Care.”

Pete added; “We know that the Hospice is very compassionate, the staff that work there are exceptionally good carers and nurses and we just know that every penny, every pound that gets put in the bucket is put to a very good cause and used most efficiently. It’s channelled in the right direction and used at the sharp end for what is no doubt a wonderful quality of care.”

Rog goes on to say; “You don’t have to go very far before you find somebody who’s had to go there or they know somebody that’s been treated at Mount Edgcumbe, it means a lot to people around here.”

Since starting to sing for Cornwall Hospice Care, the Boscastle Buoys have raised over £10,000 for the charity, which they are very proud of.  Pete said; “We would like to say a big ‘Thank you’ to everybody who has supported us since we’ve been raising money for the Hospice.

Rose Beattie, Cornwall Hospice Care’s Fundraising Manager, accepted the latest donation from the group at the show; “The Boscastle Buoys are great. They bring in a steady stream of donations for our charity and in support of our two adult hospices at Mount Edgcumbe in St Austell and St Julia’s in Hayle. They have a massive amount of fun enjoying their singing, while also remembering their friend and we truly appreciate their remembering us and the work the teams at Cornwall Hospice Care do. All the money they raise comes from Cornwall and is then spent by us for and in Cornwall.  It’s a good Cornish partnership.”
