Charity Collection for Corcs

By Rob Overfield

Please help Michael Corcoran's family raise money toward vital equipment for children with breathing difficulties.

Last year, Michael's brother and sister-in-law lost two little boys; Charlie Jr, who was just 3 years old, and baby Noah, who was only 6 hours old when he tragically passed away.

Both boys suffered with breathing difficulties and needed the use of specialist machines, opti-flow and c-pap machines, which help babies and young children to breathe easier when suffering from chest infections and other breathing illnesses.

The family saw, while Charlie and Noah were being treated, how high the demand was for these at their local hospital, Northwick Park, meaning that many babies and children had to try and manage without them, which caused them a great deal of worry when Noah and then Charlie wasn't able to have use of one.

After the loss of the boys, the extended family vowed that no family should have to go through what they had done, and started raising funds to try and provide Northwick Park with more of these machines. At the time they started their campaign, there was only one of the opti-flow and one of the c-pap machines on the massively stretched ward, which is clearly not enough.

Tomorrow, at the Truro game, the club are pleased to be able to help them with a bucket collection towards their campaign, and you will see volunteers from the club with the collection buckets as you come into the ground. Please give as generously as you can, and make the Corcoran family proud of your help.

They also have a GoFundme page open for if you want to help them further, to raise even more for more machines to be installed on the ward and help the children, so that other families don't have to suffer as they did.

The page is at

Thank you.
