What is The In Memory Of Award?

Some people contribute to benefit others in so many quiet, understated ways, that it’s only when they’ve left this world we really understand the value of what they’ve achieved.

It might be their life’s work for a charity, or a sports association; a carer, holding a ministry, a milkman, postman or a teacher; perhaps, they’ve been a community champion or run a voluntary group dedicating many hours of their time to improve the lives of other people.

This award is a way of remembering them for all the right reasons and celebrating their life’s achievements.

WINNER: Ava Hollie Williams

Sophia Williams from Liskeard arrived at Derriford in twenty-sixteen, excited to give birth to a little girl.

But the day before her due date quickly turned to tragedy.

Ava Hollie Williams was stillborn.

Parents Sophia and Gareth set up an amazing charity in their little girl’s name.

Pregnant women are being given special wallets packed with information and advice, thanks to Ava's Fund.

Sponsored by - Cornwall Hospice Care

Cornwall Hospice Care - care and support for those affected by terminal illnesses in Cornwall.

Cornwall Hospice Care provides specialist support for terminally ill patients, their families, carers and friends.

A Cornish 24/7 charity, the clinical teams support in and out patients at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice in St Austell, St Julia's Hospice in Hayle, in the community with the Neighbourhood Hub and Open House initiatives, in Cornwall's acute hospital and in care homes. 

The charity also runs a 24/7 advice line for other healthcare professionals. It costs £5.15 million to provide this specialist care each year and only 19% is funded through an NHS contribution. The rest is raised via the support of the people of Cornwall who leave us legacies, support fundraising events, play our lottery and donate to, and buy in, our 32 shops.
