Terms & Conditions
In 9 months we raised over £135,000 for school playground development, installation of a Yurt outdoor classroom, woodland and environmental development, transition and summer schools.
Since the course we have been successful with funds from the Big Lottery, Cornwall Community Fund, Comic Relief and West Cornwall Youth Trust. We have raised over £26,000 in the last 6 months for projects for young people who live in areas of deprivation.
We raised £35,000 over three years towards a managers post and £58,000 for Young Carer activities. The Course was highly motivating and rewarding with great support, feedback and encouragement. I feel that I have gone from novice to expert in one year.
