Last year Penhaligon’s Friends supported 875 bereaved children, young people and their families throughout Cornwall, at a cost of approximately £300 per child.
We rely purely on donations to keeps us going. Being a small charity means that every penny we get is ploughed straight into helping people who are struggling with bereavement. Whatever you can give will help someone, somewhere.

(that will raise £10 for Penhaligon’s Friends) Ask each of them to hold a coffee morning for five friends, again charging £2 each (that will raise a further £50 – 25 people times 2). Ask those 25 people to each hold a coffee morning for five of their friends and that will raise £250 – increasing your total to £310 !
