For 2019, we have chose the Cornish charity Penhaligon’s Friends who support bereaved children, young people, parents and carers throughout the county. We raised £2353.01
Louise, from the host group Bamaluz Booteggers, says "after the death of my sister, to whom my children were extremely close, the charity was so helpful and caring that it really helped them to cope. They understand how to support young, bereaved children at a time when those closest to them are struggling to cope themselves. It is a very worthwhile, local charity we are proud to get behind."
