The Macmillan Christmas Fair helps cancer patients across Cornwall

Last year, with your help, we raised £57,000 – the biggest total in the event’s 25-year history. And since it began in 1991, The Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair has raised more than £580,000 for cancer support throughout the county.

On behalf of the organising committee 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, you are directly helping to keep this amazing service going. Thank you.

We are extremely saddened by the passing of Lady Mary Holborow. As you may know, our President Lady Mary, Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall for 17 years, founded the Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair in 1991 and was instrumental in the £580,000 raised over the last 26 years for Macmillan Cornwall. Mary will be dearly missed by us all.

Thanks to our organising team

We have a host of wonderful people giving their time, skills and enthusiasm to The Cornwall Macmillan Christmas Fair and we’d like to let you know who they are!
