Amid rising prices and an uncertain economy, Cornish businesses have stayed loyal to Hall for Cornwall (HfC) and have continued to support its growth and development over recent years.
HfC, now in its 17th year, has offered its deepest thanks to longstanding corporate supporters – despite a tough financial climate.
Companies in Cornwall and beyond can support HfC by becoming a corporate friend or sponsor. In return they enjoy a range of benefits such as priority seats, free tickets, and complimentary hospitality spaces at the theatre.
Four of the companies that have renewed their sponsorship recently are Watson French, Robinson Reed Layton, Truro and Penwith College and Vickery Holman. All of whom have sponsored HfC for many years and have just signed up for another 12 months of sponsorship.
Other companies that have loyally supported the Hall over the years are Bluefin, Standen, Worldwide Financial Planning, Kelly’s of Cornwall, Cornish Farmhouse, Chaffins, Allen and Heath, Nationwide Print, the West Briton, Pepper Communications, NCI, with Business Cornwall magazine as the most recent member coming on board.
Katie Hill, who manages the corporate accounts at HfC, said: “We can’t thank our supporters enough for their unfailing loyalty. Many of the companies signed up don’t even use the benefits available to them but continue to renew their corporate membership every year, providing the vital support needed to secure the theatre’s future.”
As a thank you to the corporate friends, HfC organised a backstage Christmas tour for all employees and their families, who saw the complex workings of the annual panto.
