At LARF Cornwall we have been fortunate enough to have had many kind people donating money to us and holding events to raise funds since our charity formed. We wanted to say a big thank you to all those who helped us in the past and want to help us in the future. If you are looking to raise money for LARF then you can find out how to help on our ‘raise money’ page.
In the past we have been lucky enough to have these people raise money for us (amongst others!):
- Morval Rally invited us to their steam rally event as their ‘Charity of the year.’ We gave a first airing of our LARF Cornwall gazebo and sold merchandise whilst raising awareness of our cause. The amazing people organising the event donated £4,000. Thank you!
- A hair-shave-off event raised £9,000. Andrew Stains (Diddy) grew his hair for almost 2 years with an original aim to raise £1,000. The whole idea became bigger and bigger, turning into an event with a 3-course meal, an auction and live hair shavings! Support for the event was huge. Read our events page for the full low-down on Diddy’s LARF event.
- A coffee morning was held to celebrate what would’ve been Rosie’s 21st birthday at the Howis family garden in Heamoor. Many locals turned up and the support was fantastic.
- Thank you very much to the band Barfly and band member Roger who recently put on a night of music and raffle events at the Carnon Downs Garden Centre in aid of LARF. The guys had a great night and raised £600 for the charity through tickets, a raffle, a quiz and selling merchandise on the night. Thanks.
There have been many other events and we’ll be uploading details on past and future events on our ‘events’ page.
An All-Day Jamathon will be taking place on Saturday 7 July, raising money for LARF!
Toast Bar in Falmouth holds a regular jam session on a Tuesday night, called Jam on Toast, obviously, and this is an extension of that.
Regular players at Jam on Toast include Russell Gibson and Dixie Van Hoorn, who have raised money for LARF before, at Jacob’s Ladder, but they’re hoping to raise even more money this time. read more…
