Cornwall Hospice Care are a significant charity based here in Cornwall who are persistently providing specialist care and support to terminally ill patients and their families. Cornwall Hospice Care is a non stop Charity with their work being 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Their clinical teams assist in and out patients at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St. Austell, St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle and in Cornwall’s hospitals, care homes and further in the community which involves providing a 24 hour advice line for other healthcare professionals.
Plainly, through such difficult times its essential to help aid Cornwall Hospice Care, their families and most importantly their patients this Christmas with partaking in a merry event to bring everyone together and provide a joyful memory which you can treasure every Christmas.
We are extremely privileged to have the Santa Series running around our local stores, all around Cornwall the Santa Series shall be taking place throughout this December. We are also really proud to have some our staff involved and volunteering to run and help out with the events!
It currently costs over £5 million yearly to provide the specialist care the Hospice provides to their in and out patients. Cornwall’s NHS Commissioners only pay for 71 days of care each year which is only around 20% of the funds. This is why Cornwall Hospice Care depend on your generosity and for the community to come together and help aid this charity.
– £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.
Ultimately, the Santa Series event and the Charity are so meaningful to our community we can’t begin express the benefits of being involved with the run/cycle or simply turning up to encourage and support everyone at the event.If you would like to join us in raising as much money as possible for such an inspiring and extraordinary charity, grab your trainers and sign up HERE !
