Helston Phoenix Project recognised by MP
Monday 13th March 2017
In the Autumn term, the Helston Phoenix Project applied for funding from the Tesco's 'Bags of Help' local community grant scheme. The proposal was put forward for the public to vote in December, with a first prize of £5,000. We had over 7,000 votes and won the top prize! As the first 'Helston' based project to win, Tesco's (Helston) invited us to receive our cheque last month.
The money that we won, will provide holiday projects for students at Helston Community College. This Easter, we are taking over twenty young people to Stithians Lake for a two-day activity. We also have a two-day activity planned for the June half-term at BF Adventure, and in the Summer holiday, Active Plus our partner project, will run a one-day life craft course, where instructors from the Dan Joel Surf School will teach surfing to a group of young people.
If any student would like to sign up for an activity, please contact Karen Harvey at Helston Community College. Please be aware that places are going fast!
