A big thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote for HRCST’s entry in the Aviva Community Fund competition last year. We applied for £25,000 to build a floating classroom and we managed to get 4,198 votes. We didn’t win but we gained a huge amount of positive publicity from this national, high profile competition and we plan to try again next time!
Thank you to students on the Foundation Learning course at Cornwall College Camborne who held a number of fundraising events at the College over the summer term and raised £350 to donate to HRCST!
We are delighted to welcome Helen Bishop-Stephens our new Fundraising Manager. Helen has a background in the arts including fundraising and marketing. Since returning to Cornwall she has led a Heritage Lottery-funded restoration project at Harvey’s Foundry Trust in Hayle and a marketing and events programme for the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Growth Hub at Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. She grew up crewing mirror and wayfarer dinghies on Restronguet for her sailing-enthusiast parents. Now that her children are showing an interest in being on the water, she vows to let them hold the tiller. Well, sometimes.
Rowan Blewett is Trusts Administrator and has held posts in community fundraising and events at Cornwall Hospice Care and Shelterbox. She is a keen sportsperson who enjoys netball, snowboarding and hiking. She can often be found at the Helford retrieving her dog from the water.
If you’d like to get involved with fundraising, we’d love to hear from you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01326 250765
