We are aware that it is hard to put on events without feet on the ground or hands on support...so that's what we do! We are the marshall, the bakers - not yet the candle-stick makers!

Coastal Walk in aid of Cornwall Mind
Our members joined other Rotary Clubs to support an energetic fundraiser for Cornwall Mind. We enjoyed fabulous weather and two great days walking from Porthcothnan to Mawgan Porth and Bedruthan back to Porth, as part of the Big Rotary Coastal Path Challenge. On both occasions the delighted walkers enjoyed a fabulous cream tea at Rotarian, Caroline’s house at Porth and a swim afterwards. We raised over £250.
