Penzance Firefighters ‘Ladder Climb’

Penzance Firefighters recently organised a very successful Ladder Climb event in the Wharfeside Shopping Centre in Penzance to raise funds for Tanya’s Courage.  Staff and volunteers from our Penzance “Inspired by Joshua Jones” Shop were on hand to collect donations and run a tombola.  Many thanks to Penzance Firefighters for their much valued support,  as well as those who supported us with donations on the day.

Falmouth Fundraising Events

Tanya’s Courage has recently been generously supported by a variety of superb fundraising events in the Falmouth area, organised by friends and families of past & present beneficiaries: a dance & most recently a highly successful sponsored abseil at the Maritime Museum. Many thanks to all involved for support.

Penzance Fundraising & Helston Events

Staff and volunteers at our  Tanya’s Courage “Inspired by Joshua Jones” Shop in Penzance have not only been working very hard to bring you their usual excellent value selection of goods, while making decorative improvements to the shop, they have been planning and carrying out a range of local fundraising activities.  Mazey Day was a great success, with tombola, raffles, cup cakes & Mickey & Minnie Mouse raising funds & bringing our charity to the attention of many new customers. They also organised a store collection at Sainsburys in Helston – many thanks to both our volunteers & Sainburys friendly staff for such a successful collection day.

Helston will also be the venue for a Memorial Charity Football Tournament & Music Festival (in memory of Joshua Jones) at Helston Football Club at the end of August.  Details to follow soon.

Which brings us to an appeal.  Of course, we are always delighted to have volunteers who can give a regular commitment, but we also very much appreciate those who can only help occasionally, or even once.  For store collections and fundraising events we often need extra people while our existing volunteers run our shops.  If you can volunteer for just a few hours,  please contact us – your help would be much appreciated.  Or perhaps you might consider organising your own event?  Please ring, e-mail, or come along to one of our events.  We’ll look forward to meeting you!

Our Penzance Shop: now “Inspired by Joshua Jones”

Our Tanya’s Courage Charity Shop at 84 Market Jew Street Penzance has a new inspiration!

The shop is now Tanya’s Courage “Inspired by Joshua Jones” named in memory of one of our past and much missed beneficiaries.

Joshua’s mother Nicola Jones is now the Manager of the shop, and she and her team of enthusiastic volunteers would be glad to see you.  They would, of course, be glad to accept your donations to the shop and would be particularly pleased to hear from individuals and groups who would be prepared to help in the shop or with organising fundraising events.   We thank the public for their continued support for our Penzance shop and local fundraising, which has contributed greatly to Tanya’s Courage being able to offer help to thirty beneficiaries and their families in the Penzance/Penwith/Helston area alone.
