In January our charity of the month was LARF Cornwall, a trust working with teenagers and young people undergoing treatment for cancer and leukaemia.
LARF was established in 2010 in memory of two Cornish girls, Rosie and Lauren, who became friends over the course of their cancer treatment before losing their fight against the disease while still in their teens.
Their families set up Lauren And Rosie’s Fund (LARF) so they might help others in the same situation, and over the years they’ve taken an active role in improving the facilities and support available to young cancer suffers and their loved ones.
According to LARF: ‘2,555 teenagers and young adults are diagnosed with cancer every year, that’s 7 every day. With your support, we aim to make a difference. More than 80% of those who are diagnosed beat cancer. Sadly, Lauren and Rosie were not part of that 80% but their positivity and attitude throughout their fight left behind a legacy, and inspired their parents to set up the LARF cancer charity.’

Staff donations helped us raise £300 for this very worthy cause in January, if you’d like to make a donation to LARF you can do so through their website.
