The Cornwall research charity fund

This page was last updated: February 20th, 2023

Much of the Research and Development programme in Cornwall would not be possible without the generosity of our supporters.

Your charitable donations help us provide:

  • Patient amenities
  • State-of-the-art equipment
  • Innovative research opportunities
  • Funding towards additional staff so that we can offer more research opportunities

Recent fundraising has helped us transform one of our research clinic rooms into a child-friendly environment where children can play, read books, play computer games or watch films. These facilities act as a distraction for our younger visitors during their clinic visits as well as provide play facilities for them when accompanying others to their appointments.

Marazion Cancer Shop

A group of local volunteers run a charity shop in the Code Institute in Marazion. A large percentage of money raised by the shop went to funding a cancer research position and equipment to benefit cancer research patients at the trust through our charity. There are many bargains to be had and the shop is open from Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm. Find more information on the Marazion Cancer Shop Facebook page.
