Here at LARF Cornwall we aim to assist in the treatment and care of teenagers and young people under the age of 24 within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as well as improving facilities. Primarily for those receiving cancer and leukaemia treatment.
It’s important to us that teenagers and young people aren’t just “existing” on wards and in hospitals and that we can make the experience a more pleasant one. We 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.
There are 10 trustees in all – 5 who are related to Lauren – Mandy Hoare, Scott Hoare, Darren Hoare, Gill Morgan and Amy Sharp – and 5 who are related to Rosie – Stephen Howis, Tina Howis, Charlie Howis, Terry Quick and Keith Stockham.
LARF is a 100% charitable organisation and no trustees receive any funds for the work they put in.

So what’s 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.
