Flying High for Trengrouse

Posted by cornwallcare on June 30, 2017

On 7th September 2017 Mark Halford and a collection of colleagues and family members took to the skies to raise money for Trengrouse.

The skydiving event took part at 9am at Perranporth Airfield and Mark - along with Niamh Halford, Ricky Dent, Bethany Cowls, Daniela Vasile, Maria Timofte and Bradley Southerd raised approximately £1,050 so far which is a tremendous achievement.

Well done!

The money raised will go towards the amenities’ funds for the residents of Trengrouse. This fund pays for activities, events, trips out, music, arts and other therapies – all very much needed and enjoyed by those residents that take part.

Cornwall Care is an independent Cornish charity and the largest provider of care in Cornwall. We have 16 care and nursing homes, a large domiciliary home care service, as well as a supported living service and flats for people over the age of 18 who require support to remain living independently.
