The Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of The Cornwall Community Foundation, has granted groups £17,694 to help improve lives and communities throughout the county.
Ten groups were awarded grants ranging from £500 to £3k. The money is being used to improve community spaces and provide activities that bring communities together.
The groups that are benefitting from the first round of funding in 2014 are Marhamchurch Village Hall, Falmouth & Penryn Sea Cadets, Hayle & District Bowling Club, The Sculpture Workshop CIC, The Seeds Project, Menheniot Old School Trust, 1st Stoke Climsland Scout Group, Newlyn Archive, St John Village Hall Committee and Pengegon Institute Trust Community Hall.
Chairman, Toby Ashworth, said: “As a Cornwall 100 Club member I am delighted to be able to support the grassroots organisations and their volunteers in our Cornish communities to maintain their work.
“Our mission is to help build stronger communities by supporting the isolated, vulnerable and disadvantaged through grant awards. Our aim this year is to continue to extend our membership and to increase our grant making capacity.”
