Organisers of this year’s Greenbank Fal River Festival are celebrating breaking another record.

The ten-day festival, which attracted a record 100,000 people this year, has raised over £75k for charity.

The figure beats last year’s total of £70k.

Festival director, Toby Budd, said: “We’re so pleased with how much money the festival has raised this year.

“It’s great to say that we beat last year’s figure and helped so many worthwhile causes, especially ones that are close to home.

“The festival is a real celebration of life on and around the Fal and the fact that so many people got involved and donated shows that we’ve got a great event.”

Money raised has gone to, amongst others, the Royal National Mission for Deep Sea Fisherman, Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, RNLI, ShelterBox and BF Adventure.
