LARF Cornwall was founded in 2010 after two very special girls lost their fights against cancer, and their families wanted to not only honour their memories but help those who were in the same situation.
LARF Cornwall stands for Lauren & Rosie’s Fund, and we work in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, with teenagers and young people undergoing treatment for cancer and leukaemia. We help provide ancillary support, to stand alongside medical intervention.
There are ten trustees in all – five who are related to Lauren – Mandy Hoare, Scott Hoare, Darren Hoare, Gill Morgan and Amy Sharp – and five who are related to Rosie – Stephen Howis, Tina Howis, Charlie Howis, Terry Quick and Keith Stockham.

This year it will be on Saturday August 5th, from 10am till 2pm, at Terry and Keith’s house, 29 Parc Letta, Heamoor. read more…
