House Party at Merchants Manor raised £5,000 for local communities

21 October 2015


The CCF’s House Party at Merchants Manor in Falmouth on the 9th of October was a great success. The black tie event was generously hosted by Nick Rudlin and Sioned Parry-Rudlin of Merchants Manor and raised £5,000 for the CCF.


110 guests attended the evening and enjoyed a fabulous dinner, entertaining raffle and dancing into the small hours. Jane Hartley, Vice-Chair of the CCF said ‘Many thanks to all those who donated so generously, we had a rewarding and fun evening for the CCF. It was wonderful to see so many people from the Falmouth area enjoying and kindly supporting a CCF event.’


Oliver Baines, CEO of the foundation, said ‘Once again this event proves how indebted we are to all our fantastic supporters. Not only was the night a fantastic, enjoyable evening with fine company, delicious cuisine and lots of laughter but also a successful fundraising event. Thanks to Sioned and the team at Merchants Manor and to our volunteers who organised such a memorable evening.


The CCF is very grateful to all those who donated the amazing raffle prizes. The prizes were kindly donated by Maxine Hart, Elemental, Merchants Manor, Sipsmith Independent Spirits and The Nare Hotel. Welcome drinks were kindly supplied by Sipsmith Independent Spirits and Fever-Tree.

The party was organised by dedicated volunteers, a big thank you to Emma Mantle and Jane Hartley.

All the money raised by CCF will stay in Cornwall to support local community projects. The CCF has invested £6m in the community since 2003 and over 2000 local projects have benefited in Cornwall.
