As many of you will know we always support Cornish based charities, organisations and individuals. We feel it is important that all as the money is raised in Cornwall it should made available to help Cornish people. As there are so many good causes to support it is always difficult to make a final decision and this year has been no exception!
However, for the 2017 Bale Push we have chosen Crantock Christmas Lights, Cubert School PTA and CLIC Sargent as our main organisations. Here is a little information about each one….
CRANTOCK CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
It was decided that Crantock Village needed new lights to brighten up our lovely village during the festive period. So, a small group of merry fundraisers has set out to raise funds for to purchase new lights.
We have successfully applied for a grant of £500 from the Cubert and Crantock Community Benefit Trust and have a number of other projects on the go which will raise much needed funds to add to the “pot”!
CUBERT SCHOOL PTA
Cubert School is extending its classroom provision and the new classrooms and play areas will be completed shortly. The PTA are at present very busy fundraising to provide new equipment for the play areas - they have lots of events planned this summer for example quizzes, a Summer Fete and Duck Races at Holywell Beach. The Bale Push supported Cubert School Football Team as few year back so new built almost ready so we have decided to help!
We have not supported CLIC Sargent for several years and decided that it was time to put this right! This fabulous charity provides a holistic approach to supporting children and their families, with a network of support throughout the UK providing immediate help to those in need. The Royal Cornwall Hospital has a specially dedicated Ward, treatment areas, specialist nurses, social workers and doctors to support the child and families from throughout the treatment process. CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children, young people and their families. Our care teams have been providing specialist support across the UK for years. And CLIC Sargent care teams will fight tirelessly to limit the damage cancer causes. They will listen, and ask the right questions, so that they can provide the right support, tailored to each young person and family.
