In 2015 we had two major fundraising events
Cornwall Churches Day and Diwrosa Kernow (Cycle Cornwall).
Update – We did it!
We are really pleased and proud to confirm that Joe and Jon have succeeded in their Charity Challenge, what’s more they finished ahead of schedule.
Thank you so much for your sponsorship. We have raised nearly £3 000.00 to date and expect this to increase as they have now successfully completed their challenge.

Diwrosa Kernow (Cycle Cornwall)
CYCLISTS and cycling clubs were invited to join two enthusiastic volunteers who are cycling the entire length of Cornwall and back to raise money for the Cornwall Historic Churches Trust (CHCT).
Cycle Cornwall – Diwrosa Kernow in Cornish – will be held over two days, with the intrepid participants, Joe Davidson and Jon Ramage, cycling a total of 216 miles on September 17 and 18, (a Thursday and Friday). They hope as many sponsored cyclists as possible will join them for at least part of their strenuous journey.
Both Joe and Jon are building surveyors employed by the specialist Truro-based Scott & Company, which is lending support to the ambitious scheme.
Cycle Cornwall is part of this year’s effort to raise funds for the Trust, which gives vital financial support to Cornwall’s Christian places of worship, saving many from ruin over the years since it was formed in 1955. The peripheral route planned will pass more than 100 historic churches and chapels on the way, starting at St Morwenna’s, Morwenstow. It will take a course along the North Coast all the way west to St Just-in-Penwith parish church, near Land’s End. Continue reading
