The CCF is welcoming applications to the new Papillon Fund for the benefit of the local community. We award small grants to grassroots, front line, volunteer led organisations who are making a positive impact in their area.

The Papillon Fund supports community projects, within the parishes of St Thomas & South Petherwin. Out of area applications may be considered on the condition the beneficiaries attending the project reside within the listed Parishes (evidence of this will be required). Grants range from £250 to £1,000, larger sums can be awarded in exceptional circumstances. First time applicants will take priority.  

Kirsty Philpott, Operations Manager at the CCF, said “We are delighted to announce the launch of the ninth renewable energy funding programme, the Papillon Fund. Since 2013 we have been able to assist 130 community projects within Cornwall through renewable energy funding programmes, it is fantastic being able to help local people by making a positive impact in their area.”

The CCF administers the Papillon Fund on behalf of Mr and Mrs Finnimore. Judith Finnimore said “We are delighted to be able along with Clean Earths generous Community Benefit donation, to help as many local clubs and projects over the next 20 years.”

Trish Draper, from Clean Earth Energy Ltd (Cleanearth) based in Wadebridge, said “The turbine will generate approximately 1.2 million kwh per year - sufficient power for the equivalent of 350 homes. In common with all such Cleanearth projects, a substantial index linked annual contribution is made for the benefit of the community in and around the turbine. At Cleanearth we are dedicated to the future of renewable energy within an engaged community."

Application forms and grant guidelines, including full eligibility, are available to download from our website or contact the office on 01566779333 for further information, the application deadline date is the 31st March 2015.
