Emily’s haircut for LARF

Emily, a brave young lady, has had a dramatic haircut, to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, but also to raise money for LARF.

Emily’s mum has sent us the pictures, along with the news that Emily has raised a staggering £1241.25, including over £60 from Gift Aid.  Emily, we are so grateful, and you will help make a big difference to a lot of people.  Thank you.

Another all-you-can-eat Bugs night!

Another all-you-can-eat Bugs night!

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 something unappetising to eat, and the crowd donates after each round, to keep their favourite contestants in for the next round. read more…

Sponsored haircut for LARF

Sponsored haircut for LARF

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.

King Harry Ferry total fundraising…

King Harry Ferry total fundraising…

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…

Thanks everyone!

TorFX is an international currency transfer provider, with offices in London and Australia.  However, their head office is right here in Penzance. They specialise in helping individuals and businesses move money abroad, often to fund emigration or foreign property purchases and investments.

They have been operating since 2004, and every month they raise money for a different local or national charity through sponsored dress down days. All staff nominate the charities they’d like to support at the start of the year, and Larf was nominated by several people this time around. Many of the Penzance staff are aware of Rosie’s and Lauren’s stories, and the team were really proud to support a charity that does such amazing work in their memories.

In addition to raising money for us they also published a post on their website’s blog, inviting further donations. You can read the blog here: https://blog.torfx.com/company-news/januarys-sponsored-charity-larf-supporting-young-people-with-leukaemia-and-cancer/

This means that there may be even more money raised for the young people we support, but also that any families which find themselves with a diagnosis of cancer will know where to find us.  You will understand why we say we hope NOT to see any of them, although they’re clearly lovely people!
