Lappa Valley will be donating the proceeds from ticket sales on Saturday 24 September to support the work of Penhaligon’s Friends, the organisation that supports bereaved children and young people across Cornwall.
Based at Newlyn East near Newquay, the family tourist attraction chose Penhaligon’s Friends as their charity of the year to support in 2022. Visitors enjoying a fun-filled family day out have also been encouraged to donate to the cause at collection points on-site during the year.
Penhaligon’s Friends was founded in 1995 and has supported thousands of children and their families in Cornwall ever since it. Over the past year, they have supported 994 bereaved young people across the county and continue to provide specialist training and advice to childcare professionals.
Ben Harding, Operations Manager at Lappa Valley said: “We are looking forward to this special charity day on Saturday and being able to continue our support for Penhaligon’s Friends and the important work that they undertake in Cornwall. Visitors wishing to visit us for this event are encouraged to book their places on our website in advance and we can’t wait to welcome everyone for what is set to be a great day.”
Julie Parker, CEO of Penhaligon’s Friends said: “We are delighted that Lappa Valley is supporting us as their charity for 2022 and grateful for their support. The last few years have been a real challenge for us, and we have had to be creative and adapt our support to continue to be as available as we can be for bereaved children and families through a very difficult time. This support means a lot to us and will enable us to fund resources for bereaved children referred to our service.”
