Supporting local charities
Here at The Harbourside Refuge we are very proud to support local charities and all the fantastic work that they do.
At the restaurant we charge a 50p discretionary donation, with all the proceeds going towards our selected charities.
the fishermen's mission
The Fishermen’s Mission has been a charity for nearly 140 years. They are in the ports and coves regularly reaching out to fishing families throughout the UK. More than 13,000 people work in fishing: the UK’s toughest and most dangerous peacetime occupation.
At sea, an average of 15 fishermen are killed or seriously injured every year.
On land, many struggle with insecurity and debt, and for the 50,000 retired fishermen and their families, the hardship continues as they face scant savings, loneliness and isolation. The charity provides emergency 24-hour response all year round.
The Fishermen’s Mission is a lifeline for many and plays a vital role in fighting poverty and despair in our fishing communities.
royal cornwall hospitals charity
Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity is the registered charity for St Michael’s Hospital, West Cornwall Hospital and Royal Cornwall Hospital.
Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) is the only acute hospital in Cornwall.
The charity helps patients get diagnosed and treated faster, while at the same time making families and loved ones more comfortable.
With support the charity can purchase advanced equipment, provide better healing environments and support critical research projects.
RNLI Lifeboats volunteer crew provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, and the seasonal lifeguards look after the people on the beaches. There is also a Flood Rescue Team that helps those affected by flooding.
RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives since 1824 and they influence, supervise and educate people too.
The Community Safety teams explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone going out to sea or to the coast, while their international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world.
