Our Objective:

The Objective of LARF Cornwall is to assist in the treatment and care of teenagers and young people under the age of 24 within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Primarily for those undergoing and having cancer and leukemia treatment.

We aim to do this by raising funds to initially assist Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust in the introduction of providing medical facilities, equipment and support specifically designed for the age group of teenagers and young people to the age of 24. This will run alongside Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust clinical site strategy development plan.

The long-term aim is to annually raise funds to enable RCHT to have specialist trained medical staff & Psychiatric staff to support these individuals whilst undergoing cancer/leukaemia treatment. Either within a hospital environment or as outreach community support.

What we've done so far:

LARF is a Cornish based charity and this has touched the hearts of many people throughout the county and have spurred them to carry out many different activities to raise money to help LARF Cornwall. We have had so many different events and activities for us such as marathons, swims, cycles, cake sales, schools, and even a dodgeball tournament.

Thanks to these people and the annual events we run ourselves we have managed to raise over £65,000 in just three short years with donations increasing year over year.

With this money we have managed to donate  satnavs and necessary equipment to the local CLIC nurses to aid them in giving the excellent level of care they give in the South West.

We have also donated funds towards the new Lowen Ward at RCHT for artwork and TV’s etc so the patients weren’t just existing in a hospital ward but flourishing in a colourful environment with up to date things to do.

Sue Derbyshire was taken on through RCHT as a part time TYA Nurse (Teenager and Young Adults) in 2011. In 2013 we were given the go ahead to pay for additional hours for Sue, which she uses to spend quality time with patients and their families outside of a hospital environment. This is the first step to our main objective of providing  full time LARF nurses.

We have also now taken on the services of Kirsten Leslie, a trained psychotherapist who carries out counselling sessions at RCHT for patients and their families.

So whats next?

Our aims now are to work closer and closer with RCHT to continually increase the standard of care for patients and to continue to fund our 2 staff members and possibly increase these hours and positions in the future. We are also looking to fund Debbie Charles as LARF Social Co-ordinator to give the patients things to look forward to. Their first event will be the Forget it Ball, which we hope will become an annual event.
