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.
Yes, that’s right, Zafiros bar is hosting another I’m a Celebrity-style Bushtucker Trial on Thursday 1 March, from 7pm.
The money raised will be split between LARF and Walk the Walk against breast cancer.
How it works is that a bunch of brave (foolish) contestants are presented with soemthing unapetising to eat, and the crowd donates after each round, to keep their favourite contestants in for the next round. read more…
A brave young lady named Emily Putnam has decided to do two wonderful things to support children and young people with cancer.
Firstly, she’s having a hair cut, and donating around 15 inches of her beautiful long hair to the Little Princess Trust, to be used to make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment.
Every year the lovely people at King Harry Ferry choose an annual charity to support, raising money for this cause throughout the year, taking donations from their passengers. Foot and cycle passengers are able to travel for free on the ferry, which runs across the Carrick Roads, midway between Truro and Falmouth. However, pedestrians are asked to make a donation, to the ferry’s annual charity.
For 2017, LARF was the King Harry Ferry charity, and at the end of February, the owners presented us with a checque for £3,700! We were delighted to go aboard and receive the cheque. read more…
