Royal Cornwall Museum - November 2012

When you think of a charity, you very often think of a group of people who have come together to support a serious condition/s suffered by humans, animals and sometimes plants. So when the Royal Cornwall Museum approached us to donate a prize for a raffle they are putting on to raise funds for their endowment fund that is used to support collections, work and the future projects, we thought, why not!

We all enjoy the arts, and it is very important that we can continue to support those charities who support a balanced lifestyle.

The raffle proved very popular on the day and raised over £300 from the members.
