C100 awards over £21,000 to communities in Cornwall
1 October 2015
The Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF, has awarded over £21,000 to help improve lives and communities throughout the county.
On the 29th of September ten groups were awarded grants ranging from £800 to £3,000. The money is being used to improve community spaces, provide activities that bring communities together and to support charitable organisations helping children and young people. Katie Law, Regional Director of Millerson, said, "As a first time attendee of the panel I found the experience to be a very positive one. It is clear that the Cornwall 100 Club receives many applications for funding from worthwhile causes and projects in Cornwall and it was a pleasure to be able to assist in the decision of granting funds for these causes."
George Carlton-Smith from Carlton Smith Private Wealth said, “Attending the Grant’s Panel and actively assessing applications really does emphasise the importance of what the CCF does. Deciding on where to allocate C100 Club funds is difficult, but it really gets behind the scenes of Cornwall. We find it very rewarding to know that our contributions are helping many more people than we could achieve without membership of the C100 Club. It would be great to see more Cornish businesses get involved with the organisation.”
The CCF’s business arm, 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 Club was established seven years ago in March 2008, since its inception the business club has invested over £200,000 into communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting more than 100 local projects.Back
