Falmouth Rotary Club has presented to two charities in the village some of the monies raised by the 2018 Fun Run.
The event raised £2500 for Rotary charities and this week President Chris Ohly gave a cheque for £500 to Nigel Druce for furnishings for the new conservatory at Scott House Abbeyfield home and £400 to Ian Newman, Treasurer of Mawnan Memorial Hall, towards the cost of a new public access defibrillator to be installed outside the hall.

£250 was awarded to each of the following:
Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust
Mawnan Reading Partners
Mawnan Bowling Club
(For details see our ‘News’ page).
The 2017 Mawnan Fun Run raised £2000 for Falmouth Rotary Club charities and the Club proposes donating up to 50% of this sum to youth charities and organisations in the Parish of Mawnan.
Organisations can apply for a maximum of £250 to fund a specific trip, event, activity or piece of equipment and it is hoped that a number of different small projects will be supported.
The closing date for the receipt of applications is 28 February 2018.
