Cornwall Living 2018

Let the countdown begin

This advent, Cornwall Hospice Care marks the run up to Christmas with its very own online Advent Calendar.

The calendar can be found on the charity’s website and social media, with each day featuring interesting and often little-known facts and figures about this local Cornish charity.

Christmas is a time for togetherness and reflection, so the calendar complements the charity’s seven Light up a Life remembrance services, its family-fun Santa Runs, and the care its staff and volunteers deliver, which the team
hopes will help their patients and their loved ones forge treasured memories this Christmas.

It aims to celebrate all the different elements of the charity, sharing information about its teams at St Julia’s Hospice in Hayle and Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell; its therapists out in the communities in its newly launched Neighbourhood Hubs; its 31 charity shops across Cornwall; the variety of fundraising events that take place, as well as the thousand volunteers that help to support all of this.

The calendar begins on Friday 1st December, showing that just £1 will buy a Lottery Christmas Prize Draw Ticket, presenting a chance to win £2,000! It will then run up until Christmas Eve, illustrating the charity’s specialist care work 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Cornwall Hospice Care team tell us they would like to wish everybody in Cornwall a very happy Christmas, and to send a thank you to all of their supporters for helping to fund the care in 2017. Dawn Tame-Battell, the charity’s Director of Patient Services, says: “The aim of our charity is to make as much difference as we can to as many people as people as possible who are coping with a terminal illness. Thank you again for helping us to achieve all that we do in and for Cornwall – we couldn’t do it without you!”

Cornwall Hospice Care looks forward to sharing its exciting news and events next year. Be sure to follow the charity’s social media channels and visit their website to keep up to date with this year’s very special Advent Calendar.
