Have you ever fancied becoming a Penhaligon’s Friends Volunteer?


We’re delighted to announce that we will be running our Volunteer Training Program from July 2023.  Thanks to a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund, we can offer this free training to potential volunteers across Cornwall.


Volunteers are the very heart of our charity – with their help and support we can provide bereavement support to children, young people and their families throughout Cornwall.

Whether you have a few hours a month to spare or a few days a week we would love to hear from you – anything you can offer will make a difference to bereaved children in Cornwall.


If you would like to find out more about volunteering for the charity please get in touch.

We are so grateful for your support. ❤️🎶

Ideas for Remembering on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is on 19th March this year in the UK and is a special day for honouring and appreciating mothers.  It is also a personal day, and means different things for each of us.

Children who have sadly lost their mum may want to take time to make or write something for their mum and in her memory.  They may want to write a message for her or use words or a picture that reminds them of their mum.  They could choose to leave it in a special place or give it to someone else to look after.

One simple and nice way of remembering could be to make egg box flowers which children could attach a little message to if they want.  You can find our pdf with easy, 6 step instructions here.
