The C100 awarded over £14,000 in October

17 October 2014

Eight groups were awarded a total of £14,171 by the C100 Club grant panel in October. The business arm of the CCF granted £31,685 in 2014 to help improve lives and communities throughout the county.

Ten community programmes benefited from grants in March and eight groups were awarded in October.

The awarded grants ranging from £500 to £3,000 are being used to improve community spaces and provide activities that bring communities together. For the first time the C100 Club has also awarded charitable organisations who support children and young people.

George Carlton-Smith from C100 member Carlton Smith Private Wealth said, “Running a successful business can be demanding, particularly over recent years, and it's easy to forget to take a step back to see what's going on around you. Being part of the Cornwall 100 Club provides us with a fantastic platform from which we are able to directly support the local communities in which we work and live. By clubbing together with other local businesses and drawing on the expertise of the CCF we are able to make our contributions have a much greater impact across the county.”

Pippa Davey from the Brea Open Spaces and Playground Improvement Group said “The grant award from the Cornwall 100 Club will enable us to reinvigorate the space so it can become a place for the whole village to enjoy. This is really fantastic news.”

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 C100  awarded a total of £31,685 to 18 community groups in 2014 and more than £8,000 will be ring-fenced and carried forward to the C100 grant pot in 2015.
