On Friday 17th March, we donated a grand total of £40,000 to our charity partner – Children’s Hospice South West’s Little Harbour. To celebrate such a wonderful occasion, The Cornwall Hotel Spa & Estate hosted a delicious afternoon tea & prosecco event to accompany the presentation of the cheque to Eddie Farwell; Co-Founder and CEO of Children’s Hospice South West.
Over the past year, we’ve pledged £2 for every £1 kindly donated by guests of the hotel via our Just Giving page as well as through collections on-site.
Eddie Farwell said “This is an astonishing donation for Little Harbour to receive, and from a business that is on our doorstep as well as being a provider of breaks for families; albeit in very different ways to us, it is very much appreciated. On behalf of all of the children and families we support, I would like to thank everyone who has helped The Cornwall Hotel & Spa reach such a generous total”.
Little Harbour is a home-from-home where children suffering with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses can visit for short breaks with their whole family. It offers a beautiful haven where families as a whole can receive the care and support they need to enjoy precious time together creating treasurable memories. The charity is set in a spectacular coastal location overlooking St. Austell Bay with beautiful views out to sea. The hospice offers families the opportunity to do the things they enjoy as a family and not overwhelmingly as a carer.
