Cornwall’s new Storm Fund
5 February 2014
The Cornwall Community Foundation is appealing for donations to a new Emergency Storm Fund to help with the aftermath of the recent storms. The Cornwall Community Foundation is working with Cornwall Council and other agencies on the front-line who will be referring particular cases to the CCF, both individuals and community organisations/voluntary groups.
We need strong communities at times like these and we are very grateful to everyone who has supported our appeals this winter. We still urgently need donations and pledges to make sure we can help those most affected by the recent storms in Cornwall. With more storm warnings from the Met Office in place, we need to able to respond swiftly and be ready to help local people and their communities recover.
As a registered charity, the Foundation has limited funds. Members of the public and business community who would like to help can donate to the fund by:
Online on our Just Giving page (please click on the logo at the top of the page)
Cheque payable to “Cornwall Community Foundation”, address: Suite 1, Sheers Barton, Lawhitton, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 9NJ. (please write Emergency on the back of your cheque).
All money raised through this appeal by the Cornwall Community Foundation will be spent in Cornwall, delivering grants directly to people in an emergency crisis situation.
Anyone wishing to apply for help should await an announcement which we shall make as soon as sufficient funds have been received. Community organisations can also look at other potential sources of funds on our website here.
