Trengrouse raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care

Posted by cornwallcare on June 30, 2017

On 14th October, Kim Cass and her 11 year old daughter Kira took part in a Nights of Neon event to raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care.

The event took part in Flambards theme park. Nights of Neon is a 4km route taking in the best the theme park has to offer. It is a colourful event where the participants are encouraged to have paint thrown at them by people stationed at the various paint stations throughout the route. Music was played to encourage the participants not to give up and the evening boasted an electric atmosphere that everybody enjoyed. Kim works as a customer relations administrator for Cornwall Care. Kim and Kira completed the 4km in 26 minutes and raised £250 to donate to Cornwall Hospice Care.

Well done girls!

About Cornwall Hospice Care

Every year it costs over £5 million to provide the specialist care they offer to in- and out-patients. Only 20% of this is funded through a contribution from Cornwall's NHS Commissioners, in simple terms, the NHS contribution pays for 71 days of care each year. In a calendar year that's only enough to get them to the 12th March. They rely on the generosity of people who leave legacies, support fundraising events, play their lottery and visit their 32 shops.
