This Years Chosen Charity
2017 Chosen Charity
Penhaligon’s Friends is the children’s bereavement charity for Cornwall and operates across the entire county. Last year they helped over 700 bereaved children come to terms with the death of a family member or close friend. They also support children and their families when facing a terminal diagnosis.
Their work is carried out in a combination of different ways; regular memory days and other gatherings for families, monthly teenage support groups in 4 locations across the county, family groups, school and individual support.
In addition to their children’s and family services they provide high-quality training in child bereavement to an ever-widening range of professionals and volunteers. Penhaligon’s Friends has over 70 volunteers across the county and is proud to have won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2010, the MBE for Charity Groups.
All their services are provided free-of-charge and are on-going for as long as they are needed in each individual case.
They rely entirely upon grants and donations to ensure their charity is able to support those families that need them most!
