Over £2,000 was raised at the Royal Cornwall Show
11 June 2014
The CCF is very grateful for the generous support, £2,000 was raised at the Royal Cornwall Show for the communities of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. CCF was the chosen charity of Tregothnan Estates at the Royal Cornwall Show, Tregothnan donated all the profit raised at the Show to the CCF. Tregothnan is a great supporter of the CCF and is a member of the Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF. Cornwall 100 Club member Rodda’s Creamery donated all the cream for the cream teas featuring true English tea from Tregothnan.
Oliver Baines CEO of the Community Foundation said “We are thrilled that Tregothnan hosted us at the Royal Cornwall Show, their generous support will help us to build stronger communities in Cornwall. It was exciting to meet our supporters and new friends at the show, the more friends and donors who come to join us, the greater the good we can do.”
