Cornwall Hugs Grenfell

Imagine if we could put a Cornish holiday on the horizon of every Grenfell resident and firefighter family: a time to rest, a time to let our beautiful county bless these people and work it’s gentle magic

Following the Grenfell Tower fire Visit Cornwall is happy to support Cornwall Hugs Grenfell in its initiative to give holidays for heroes and holidays of hope.  The week after the tragedy people all over Cornwall responded to a post on Facebook with offers of holidays, transport, funds for days out and more and now well over 200 weeks of accommodation have been offered, many by Visit Cornwall members. Firefighter families and Grenfell survivors are visiting Cornwall throughout the Summer and over 100 guests will come on holiday this year.  

You can now pledge your offer on their website at so that you can register the details and information of your donation.  You can also see media coverage there, find out more about the initiative and sign up to the newsletter (under News). 

Cornwall is a number one holiday destination that could provide those affected with a beautiful holiday or day out. The Cornish people have been extremely generous so far and for that we thank you.
