The CCF celebrates its Friends and Business Club
23 October 2015
The CCF's annual Friends’ and Cornwall 100 Club Party, on the 20th of October, at C100 member Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm was a fantastic evening. The Friends of the CCF supported the Crisis Fund in 2015 and the Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF, invested a total of £41,808 this year in 17 community groups. The CCF is very grateful for their ongoing support and the annual party gives an opportunity to celebrate these successes together.
Oliver Baines CEO said, ‘We were delighted to see so many of our Friends and members of our business club at the event. Without their amazing support the CCF could not deliver successfully on its charitable aims.’
The CCF is almost entirely supported by privately donated money, the majority of the funding for community investment comes from private individuals and Cornish businesses.
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. Since its inception seven years ago the business club has invested over £200,000 into communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting over 100 local projects. The funding from the Club helps local people to make their communities better places to live.
Nicky Marquis, Trustee of the CCF said, ‘Many thanks to Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm for hosting the party, it was a lovely evening and many of our Friends commented on what a great venue it was.’
You can support the foundation as a Friend of the CCF for as little as £25 a year and you can order Friends membership as a Christmas present for your friends and family. 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 events, including the annual Friends’ Party.
