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.
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!
UPDATE – we raised a fantastic £1,590 at Rosie’s birthday coffee morning! Molly raised £74 from the toy sale alone. Many thanks to everyone who donated and ate cake.
Once again, there will be a coffee morning in honour of Rosie’s birthday, full of cake, tea and happy memories of Rosie.
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…
