LARF Cornwall cancer charity aims to improve facilities and increase support for teens and young adults facing cancer
2,555 teenagers and young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year, that’s 7 every day. With your support, we aim to make a difference. More than 80% of those who are diagnosed beat cancer. Sadly, Lauren and Rosie were not part of that 80% but their positivity and attitude throughout their fight left behind a legacy, and inspired their parents to set up the LARF cancer charity.
LARF, standing for Lauren and Rosie’s Fund, was set up in 2010 by the girls’ parents, who’d met each other throughout their daughters’ treatment. Lauren and Rosie’s friendship and ability to stay positive in the face of adversity led to the parents teaming up to start LARF, not only to honour their memories but also to help those who are in the same situation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Henry’s bar, at La Cala Resort, Spain, is owned by Rosie’s Grandad Henry, who has organised a golf tournament for several years to raise money for LARF.
The tournament this year was on August 19th, and raised over €1,200, through entry fees, donations and a raffle.
Thanks to everyone who took part, and congratulations to the winners.
Rumour has it that the event will take place again next year – so if you fancy combining raising money for LARF with a golfing holiday in Spain, you know where to go!
