Cornish Christmas Giving Catalogue - 2017

This year's fantastic Cornish Christmas Giving Catalogue is now available online, with hard copies available next week. 

Rather than giving another pair of socks which may never be worn, why not do something good for the community? The Cornish Christmas Giving Catalogue features 20 charitable organisations, who are all working in Cornwall to provide advice, assistance, support and much more, to people in the local community. You choose the ‘Gift’ and in return you will receive a certificate to pass on to your family member or friend. Gifts start from just £1. Among the charities featured are homelessness groups such as St Petroc’s and Cosgarne, and Mental Health Projects such as Sea Sanctuary. New this year are the YMCA, Cornwall Refugee Resettlement Network ‘Chy Sawel’ and Prayer Shawls as well as all the food banks across the County.

Spreading the Word - The Oasis Centre’s Wellbeing Café 

The Oasis Centre is a registered charity and voluntary community organisation based in St Columb Major.  The Centre was established in 2008 to support local people in need. Through their Wellbeing Cafe they engage with some of the most lonely, isolated and vulnerable people in the area.

Trustees are available to share the story of how the Oasis Centre developed to inform others thinking of setting up a similar social action project in other local areas. 

 They are available to meet with church groups to:

  • tell their story and outline their work as an example of Christian outreach and social action.
  • think about the opportunities in their communities and take steps to meet the needs of local people.
  • explore how this may encourage future funding opportunities for your church.

To book a meeting or presentation please contact:

The Core Strength – Local Communities initiative provides funding for essential core running costs for small locally led community organisations.  Grants between £1,000 to £5,000 for up to 12 months are available to local community organisations with an annual income of up to £100,000. The initiative will sit under the Comic Relief programme of Building Stronger Communities – supporting groups who work to make their communities more connected, empowered and productive. 

Gilly Green, head of UK grants said, “We at Comic Relief recognise the importance of these community led organisations and their critical work. We also know that sometimes even the basics of keeping the lights on can be a struggle at the moment, let alone time to plan and invest in growth. At the heart of this funding is to give organisations the choice of where their needs lie – be it paying for the rent and lighting or invest in development and forward planning. We are proud to lead this approach and invest into the heart of our local communities”

The Cornwall Community Foundation are pleased to be working in partnership with UK Community Foundation and Comic Relief to deliver this programme for 2017/18. For the full guidelines please have a look on our website https://goo.gl/KAkNSu. The first deadline is on the 16th October followed by the panel on the 27th November. You apply online for this programme, the online application is available on our website.
