Cornwall Heritage Trust has received a revenue grant of £30,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation.
A small independent charity, Cornwall Heritage Trust works to preserve and strengthen Cornwall’s unique heritage through its grant schemes, education projects and the managing of 12 historic sites across Cornwall. These sites, which include the Hurler Stone Circles, Castle an Dinas, Treffry Viaduct and Sancreed Beacon, are all open to the general public and free to enter throughout the year.
The money will go towards the charity’s ongoing costs to implement its business development plan, which aims to ensure that it can continue to connect people with Cornwall’s landscape, stories and communities for many years to come.
Cornwall Heritage Trust CEO, Cathy Woolcock said: “This award is absolutely fantastic news! The money will make an enormous difference as we move forwards with our Business Development Plan and all the exciting things we have coming up as part of it. For a small charity like us, the importance of a grant like this is huge and we are extremely grateful to the Garfield Weston Foundation for its support.”
