Penhaligon’s Friends

penhaligons friends

Every year at Baker Tom’s we chose a local charity to support throughout the year. For 2020 we are hoping to raise as much money as we can for Penhaligon’s Friends – a Cornish charity who offer children and their families access to bereavement support when they need it. Their work is entirely funded by donations and grants and run by trained volunteers and professionals who give their time freely to this great cause.

As well as donation pots in all our shops we are also planning a few fundraising events in the new year – watch this space for details!

If you want to get in touch with the charity directly you can call 01209 215889 or see the website
