Toy donations by customers of Morrisons Redruth

Thank you to Morrisons and all their customers for supporting Penhaligon’s Friends this year with their Toy Appeal.

We know these toys will go to very welcome homes in time for Christmas.

Christmas is a particularly difficult time after bereavement. It is important for children to know that, whilst it may be different to how it used to be, it can still be a special time. Christmas may bring lots of mixed feelings and those who have died will be missed and thought about x

St Ives Sea Shanty Shout raises an incredible £2,352

It’s Thank You Thursday here at Penhaligon’s Friends, and today we want to thank Bamaluz Bootleggers and the St Ives Sea Shanty Shout for raising an incredible £2,352 for Penhaligon’s Friends supporting bereaved children and young people throughout Cornwall.


It was a dark and stormy weekend in West Cornwall – but that wasn’t going to stand in the way of the 4th St Ives Shanty Shout!
Coordinated by St Ives’s own Bamaluz Bootleggers, twenty-four shanty groups descended on the town from near (Foghorn Three, Zennor) and far (Halifax’s Kimber’s Men and Lytham St Anne’s Shanty Crew).
For two nights the town echoed to the sound of rousing shanties and lyrical sea songs as appreciative audiences packed seven of the town’s hostelries.
As a result, more than £2,300 was raised for the charity, Penhaligon’s Friends, which supports bereaved children, young people, parents and carers throughout Cornwall – the largest sum yet raised by the event.

Bamaluz Bootleggers’ Musical Director Sarah Hall was delighted with its success: “There was standing room only in most of the venues, and we think this was the biggest turnout yet,” she said. “It was wonderful to witness the buzz and energy in the town, and the extra footfall can only have benefited local shops, pubs, accommodation providers and other businesses in a traditionally quieter time of the year.”

Thank you once again for the generosity of all those who gave, and of course to the organisers who chose Penhaligon’s Friends.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge – Save the Date

We’re very excited to let you know that Penhaligon’s Friends has been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019, the UK’s largest match funding campaign. Last year, thanks to generous supporters like you the campaign raised over £13 million for participating charities.

We will be raising money to support 4 Memory Days for bereaved children, young people and their families in Cornwall.

Donations to this project will be matched for 7 days from 12pm on 3rd December, #GivingTuesday. One donation, twice the impact. There will be a link on our website nearer the time, but in the meantime, Save the Date, 3rd December, and tell your friends.

Maybe they are thinking of giving to charity rather than send Christmas cards, maybe they feel that the work of Penhaligon’s Friends in supporting bereaved children throughout Cornwall is important, whatever the reason, make a donation during the week will mean it is doubled!  Thank you.
