When the CCPFA re-launched in November 2015 one of the topics needing urgent review was the need to ensure the organisation was properly funded and sustainable. In order to address this issue and after consultation and research, the Trustees have decided that membership for the coming year will be based on donations.
Over the last 18 months the CCPFA has:
Provided 10 training workshops
engaged with 25 organisations and 59 individual Trustees and Committee Members
Hosted 2 networking events
Supported 6 playing fields
Set up a website and Twitter account
Set up a support network
Sent regular newsletters
Become a Charitable incorporated organisation
Engaged with 4 new Trustees
Any community organisation in Cornwall with an interest in recreation is eligible to join. The benefits to members are the services provided by the CCPFA, plus the option of becoming involved in managing the Charity by attending the AGM and nominating Trustees. If you have benefited from free CCPFA membership in the past or you feel it is vital that an organisation such as ourselves continues to exist and protect our open spaces for the future, then please help by making a membership donation. Individuals and organisations making donations will be entered onto our new database and will continue to receive regular updates and benefit from our services.
If you have any suggestions regarding additional help that you would like the CCPFA to consider providing for its members, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Payment can be made by cheque, payable to CCPFA and posted to (CCPFA 2 Princes street TRURO TR1 2ES. Please provide your organisational name, contact details and donation amount.
