C100 Club invests £14.5k


The Cornwall 100 Club (C100), the business arm of the Cornwall Community Foundation, has invested £14.5k into community projects across Cornwall.

The second round of grant awarding this year benefited 11 groups who received awards ranging from £1k to £3k.

The money is being used to improve community spaces, provide activities that bring communities together and support charitable organisations helping children and young people.

The groups that benefited from the community investments are 1st Bugle Scout Group, 1st Callington Scout Group, Cornwall Deaf Centre, Cornwall Search & Rescue Team, Darite Village Hall, Lanstephan Area Play Park, Penzance Sea Cadets, Porthleven Community Group, St Teath Play Equipment Association, The Maia Project in Camelford and Tregadillett & District Age Concern.

Gemma Elloway, from C100 member Swallowcourt, said: “On behalf of Swallowcourt, who have been providing care to the local community for 30 years, it’s great to be part of the C100 grant panel.

“The grants that were awarded to a range of beneficiaries enables the group’s activities to have the widest possible impact for Cornwall.”

Since the C100 Club was established some eight years ago, it has invested over £200k into communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting over 120 local projects.
