The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow has handed over a cheque for £22,000 to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) after putting on charity lunches in January. The chance for diners to sample a three-course set lunch menu at the well-known restaurant was snapped up by many locals and visitors and proved more popular then ever. Guests donated £2.50 straight to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) from each meal and many gave much more.
Jill Stein said; “We’re thrilled to have raised such a great amount of money for such a wonderful local charity and are very grateful to all the customers that joined us to support the lunches.”
Eddie Farwell, Co-Founder and CEO of CHSW said; “We are so grateful to Jill Stein and all of the team at The Seafood Restaurant for their hard work and help in raising this money. This donation will make a real difference to the care and support we can offer to families including providing them with home cooked meals during their stays with us at Little Harbour.
Around the dinner table families share experiences and most importantly form supportive relationships both with staff members and other families receiving support from the hospice.
Through its three children’s hospices in the south west, including Little Harbour in St Austell, CHSW offers care and support for children with life limiting and life-threatening illnesses and their families. Little Harbour is currently supporting 125 children from Cornwall and Plymouth who suffer with conditions that sadly mean they are not expected to live into adulthood. The hospice offers families the chance to stay for short breaks, giving them the chance to recharge their batteries and make special memories together. The hospice also provides palliative care, emergency stays as well as end of life care and bereavement support.
