The Macmillan Christmas Fair helps cancer patients across Cornwall
This year, with your help, we raised £58,500. And since it began in 1991, the Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair has raised more than £692,000 for cancer support throughout the county.
We’d like to thank everyone involved with the event’s continued success. Organised by our amazing team of volunteers and supported by the Eden Project and dozens of big sponsors, every year the Fair generates funds that actively improve the lives of individuals and families affected by cancer. Recently, the money has gone towards the building and upkeep of The Cove, a new support centre in Treliske helping thousands patients with practical advice, counselling and support. Every time you come to the Fair or donate to our cause, you are directly helping to keep this amazing service going. Thank you.
Lucky winners at the 2018 Fair
The winner of the Early Bird draw walked merrily away with a mixed case (6 bottles) of wine kindly donated by Knightor Winery.
