The Portloe 2016 calendar has raised an incredibly large amount of money. Father Doug accepted the ‘official’ cheque representing the proceeds of calendar sales on behalf of the charity MIND: an amazing £7,650.
An almost-impromptu party was held in the community hall (aka the church) in mid-June.
There were balloons, bunting, bangers, buns and bubbles – something for everyone.
The occasion? The winding-up of the 2016 calendar event, and the presentation of the
cheque to the charity ‘MIND’ What a tremendous community initiative – well done!Father Doug accepted the ‘official’ cheque representing the proceeds of calendar sales on behalf of the charity MIND: an amazing £7,650.
The church was filled to capacity for the party, with nearly all the ‘months’ there, accompanied by
family and friends. It is an extraordinary achievement which in the process has given so much to Portloe and the wider community. Of course, there’s now the question of next year’s calendar…Well, I guess we’ll have to wait and see !
On the subject of fundraising, £745 was raised for Cornwall Air Ambulance with events held in Portloe on the evening of the referendum, and another to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. What’s next?
And a word of thanks from Jeanette Blamey, to everyone for their many kindnesses and for all the
help given to her during the past few weeks – it’s greatly appreciated.
