Little Harbour Children’s Hospice

One of the CFWI Advisers recently attended a talk at a local WI’s meeting about Little Harbour Children’s Hospice, and was very moved.

Little Harbour, located in Porthpean, St Austell, is a home-from-home. A place where each family member can find time and space to feel normal and do the things they enjoy as a mum, as a dad, as a brother or sister: as a family, not overwhelmingly as a carer.

At Little Harbour as with all the South West Children’s Hospices, families will discover individual children’s bedrooms, accommodation for parents and siblings, a wide range of play and therapy facilities – including a messy play area, soft play room, a hydrotherapy pool and a multi-sensory room – and a homely family kitchen and living room.

For teenagers staying at Little Harbour they can make use of the IT and music facilities as well as use the games room as a place for chilling out, watching films and taking a few minutes to beat dad at pool.

Little Harbour opens their doors once a month and offers guided tours to show you exactly why your support is so valuable. This could be a great visit for your WI.

Upcoming 2018 open days are held on:
Monday 5 March
Monday 9 April
Monday 14 May
Monday 4 June
Monday 2 July
Monday 3 September
Monday 1 October
Monday 5 November
Monday 3 December
