The Captains of Budock Vean Golf Club - Mo Salomé and John Rule - pictured here (photo by Andrea Oakes) chose HRCST as their Charity of the Year for 2017 and on 11 December presented Charles Richardson, co-chairman, with a cheque for £3,907. The members collected this fabulous amount from a variety of events during the year.
HRCST held a 21st birthday celebration dinner on 17 April at The Fishmongers’ Hall in the City of London with HRH The Countess of Wessex in attendance. Guests, which included long-time friends and new supporters of the Trust, took part in an auction which raised a significant sum for the Trust. Co-Chair, Charles Richardson said, “we were thrilled with the outcome of the evening, which raised just under £100,000 for our future activities.”
We are very grateful to the many Cornish and national businesses that supported our fundraising by donating prizes to the auction.
Funds will go towards the Trust’s plans to expand its operations on the Helford River and open a National Centre for Water sports Excellence catering for children with special educational needs and disabilities at Trevassack Lake.
