C100 members visit Truro Scouts
5 September 2016
Truro District Scout Campsite received £1,000 from the business club of the Cornwall Community Foundation towards a boiler replacement at the Tomperrow campsite. Cornwall 100 Club members Amanda Williams from Alban Digital and Jeremy Miller from Millerson Estate Agents visited the project.
Tomperrow campsite was opened in 1993 and the boiler house was built at this time. Approximately two years ago it was identified that the boiler was coming to the end of its serviceable life. This boiler provides all the hot water for the shower block and is therefore essential to the operation of the suite to provide the necessary hot water for washing facilities. The new water boiler will be a high efficiency model and will provide much needed hot water at a reduced cost.
Amanda Williams said “We're keen members of the C100 and are delighted to see the Tomperrow Campsite go from strength to strength. The new boiler will make such a difference to the Scouts and the volunteers who work there"
Jeremy Miller said “Millerson were proud to be at the cheque presentation for the Truro scout group at Tomperrow. We are always trying to make sure that well deserving Cornish organisations get all the help we can get. I am sure the Scouts will appreciate the new boiler, especially during the busy camping times ahead.”
The Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF awarded a total of £22,206 to fourteen community projects in March. A second round of funding will be available in October, the deadline for application is the 8th of September. Since its inception over 8 years ago, the C100 has invested over £200,000 into communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting over 100 local projects.Back
