Thank you

Thank you to our supporters

We have been helped by a huge number of people and organisations, and we thank everyone very much. The depth and range of our support shows that we are doing something right!

The Directors

Our "governors" put in many hours of time and occasional worry behind the scenes, keeping the Trust on track and providing guidance.

The Volunteers

Loads of people have put in their time and energy as volunteers - some are still with us, some have moved on. Some have been in a few times, some are here week in, week out.  Thank you everyone - you've made this Trust what it is.

We have had unstinting support and help from the Maker-with-Rame and Millbrook parish councils, in discussions, grants and ideas.

Councillor George Trubody has been a firm supporter since day one, helping us with contacts, ideas, enthusiasm and small grants from his Community Chest.

Catherine Thompson, our Cornwall Gateway Community Link Officer, has been a committed and highly informative supporter from the early stages.

Len Smith and the team at Cornwall Council's Economic Development dept helped greatly with the work units project.

Rob Sweetzer, Kathryn Derges and the tutors at Cornwall Adult Education have put time and energy into creating our Adult Ed classes and adding new value to our work.
