The Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF, has granted groups £17,694 to help improve lives and communities throughout the county.

The groups that benefited from the first round of funding in 2014 are Marhamchurch Village Hall, Falmouth & Penryn Sea Cadets, Hayle & District Bowling Club, The Sculpture Workshop CIC, The Seeds Project, Menheniot Old School Trust, 1st Stoke Climsland Scout Group, Newlyn Archive, St John Village Hall Committee and Pengegon Institute Trust Community Hall.
Chairman Toby Ashworth said, ‘As a Cornwall 100 Club member I am delighted to be able to support the grassroots organisations and their volunteers in our Cornish communities to maintain their work. Our mission is to help build stronger communities by supporting the isolated, vulnerable and disadvantaged through grant awards. Our aim this year is to continue to extend our membership and to increase our grant making capacity.’The CCF’s business arm, the Cornwall 100 Club, is a group of like-minded businesses who along with taking Corporate Social Responsibility seriously, also want to invest in their community. The Cornwall 100 Club awarded a total of £40,300 in 2013.
The Cornwall 100 Club was established six years ago in March 2008 and supports local projects in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The funding from the Club helps local people to make their communities better places to live; in particular they encourage projects which incorporate a combination of the following themes:
Improving community spaces (village halls and outside recreational spaces)
Providing a service the whole community can benefit from
Business and communities working together
A second round of funding will be available later this year. Find details on our grants pages on how to apply for funding.Back
