Get Involved at The Cove

The Cove Macmillan Cancer Support Centre means that no one going through cancer treatment in Cornwall will have to do it alone. But we can’t do it without your support.

This page was last updated: January 6th, 2022

There are a number of ways you can get involved at The Cove, from volunteering your time to raising vital funds.


We have various volunteering opportunities available at The Cove including reception and meet and greet duties, administration (anything from photocopying to ordering stock items) and running our small café which offers a selection of snacks and hot and cold drinks.

Our volunteers all receive a bespoke induction and role-specific training.

We are happy to support students wishing to enhance their workplace experience and this may be particularly valuable to those wishing to go on to study nursing, medical and social care.
