Unfortunately this project was not successful.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for the small businesses that make Cornwall a special place to visit

A visit to Cornwall would never be the same if we lost all the small businesses the quaint little gift shops, the cafes we all love to have a cream tea in the wonderful galleries and the little attractions that make Cornwall the special place it is. Imagine places like St Ives, without those little shops, would it still feel vibrant and alive?

Imagine Falmouth with none of the little shops open for trade, Would Tintagel, Coverack or Fowey feel as welcoming? 

Cornwall has some truly beautiful beaches, villages, towns, and harbours but it is also the shops, galleries, and cafes and the people that run them that make Cornwall a truly special place to visit and live.

Help us to keep the lights on for many of the places we all love to go, that coffee with a smile, that cream tea with a view finding your ideal gift handcrafted in Cornwall

While you can't visit and help support the places you love could the money you might have spent on that coffee, ice cream or pasty be put to good use and help the places you love to explore?

All funds raised will go towards keeping the places we all love from closing and helping projects like the Flicka Foundation so very reliant on visitors to fund the work they do just one of the amazing places which make Cornwall special.

Funds will be used to help get the businesses back up and running, provide funds for bills they can no longer pay and help keep people in jobs doing what they love most serving the residents & visitors of Cornwall.

Businesses forced to close will incur additional costs to get back up and running for some those costs may be too great and be forced to close for good let's try and help them, Cornwall won't be the same without the delightful little places we all love to visit.

We are not asking for big donations if you were able to visit no doubt you would buy a coffee, have a cream tea with a view or enjoy an ice cream watching the waves so why not donate the price of a coffee or your favorite pasty so we can help Cornwall and you will still be able to have that pasty when you can visit again (We all have our favorites!)

If you can donate more that would be amazing.

Please help if you can and please share this Crowdfunding Campaign with as many people as you can extra funding raised will be used to support many more businesses.

On behalf of the many little businesses struggling to keep the lights on thank you so much. Let's help keep the lights on and keep Cornwall being that special place it is.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
