Friends’ Party at Boconnoc

21 October 2014


This year’s Friends’ Party was a fantastic evening on the 10th of October with the brilliant Medical Maelstrom performing in aid of the CCF. Medical Maelstrom is a talented trio of doctors who perform a witty musical act in their spare time. Over a hundred Friends and supporters came to enjoy the performance. We are very grateful to the Medical Maelstrom for the superb entertainment and to Anthony & Elizabeth Fortescue for hosting the event at the beautifully restored Boconnoc House.


Some reviews:

“This is the highest standard of entertainment…"

“What a privilege to be entertained by the superb talents of the trio of doctors…"

“...the beautiful voice of Michele Sharkey, combined with the hilarious antics of Sam Freegard, all held together by the perfect accompaniment of Anthony Seddon, made it an evening we will all remember…”


The challenges that the Duchy is facing are enormous, the CCF increased its grant making capacity by 60% in the first half of 2014. As we are almost entirely supported by privately donated money, we couldn’t have achieved this without the aid of our dedicated supporters, individuals and businesses who are passionate about the communities that they live in. The CCF is very grateful for their ongoing support and the annual Friends’ Party is an opportunity to celebrate these successes together.


You can become a Friend of the CCF for as little as £25 a year, or £3 a month. You will receive up-to-date information in our newsletters about where your money is going and how it is helping people around Cornwall, as well as being invited to our popular “Seeing is Believing” events which visit projects that have received grants. You will receive invitations to many other events, including the annual Friends’ Party.

You can also order Friends membership as a Christmas present for your friends and family. All money raised by the CCF stays in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting grassroots, front line, volunteer led organisations who are making a positive impact in their area, helping to overcome these challenges of disadvantage, exclusion and poverty for all ages.
