Goonhilly Wind Farm Community Fund helps Male Voice Choir
20 June 2014
St Keverne Male Voice Choir is among the latest groups across the TR12 postcode area to benefit from support from the Goonhilly Wind Farm Community Fund. The choir received £4,200 funding towards new uniforms and sheet music. Operator REG Windpower donates £48,000 a year to support good causes in the community. The Cornwall Community Foundation administers the fund, and a panel of local people decides twice a year which applications are most deserving of support. Claudia Richard, REG Windpower’s Community Relations Manager was invited to visit the choir and see their new uniforms.
Paul Taylor, Honorary Secretary of the St Keverne Male Voice Choir said “Having the sponsorship means a great deal to the choir. The timing of the grant was just what was needed to update the choir's image; you can see how smart the new uniform is. Also it enabled us to buy new music and this has allowed our Musical Director Paul Triggs to update our music to include a number of modern pieces. We feel refreshed and ready to move forward again, thank you to REG Windpower for this grant.”
Other groups to benefit from the fund in 2013 included Zelda School, Mullion Cricket Club, Sunshine Café Memory Club, St Keverne Village Hall, Gweek Village Hall and the Mawgan Recreation Ground and Hall.
The CCF welcomes applications from the TR12 postcode area for the Goonhilly Wind Farm Community Fund, the deadline for applications for the next grants is the 22nd of September.Back
