Plymouth and Cornwall Cancer Fund – Who We Are

The charity was founded in 1972, initially to create what is now the Mount Edgecombe Hospice in East Cornwall – now an entirely separate entity. In the last 40 years the charity has evolved into the charity it has become today, supporting people with cancer under the care of Derriford Hospital.

The Shop
Our charity in Hyde Park was opened in September 1997, and is run by a team of over 20 volunteers and a part time Manager. It is through this shop that currently, the great majority of our income is received. This summer 2013, we expanded into the shop next door. Come and visit us! Opening hours:
Monday – Friday 9am to 4pm
Saturday 9am to 3:30pm
Sunday – Closed

We are always looking for donations of clothes or bric-a-brac
