New stretch target

Amazing! We have hit our target already. So let's keep going. I will have another 200 vouchers printed and offer exactly the same deal as before. Then when we hit £20,000 all four rooms will be renovated at once and our 500 year old rooms will once again be used to accommodate the weary travelers who arrive in our port!

 Our restaurant is over 500 years old. I don't think the rooms have been renovated since they were built. We want to restore the guest rooms to a modern glory so that many more tourists and locals alike can enjoy staying in them for holidays, breaks, business or just to go to sleep after a fantastic meal in our restaurant. If we can raise £10,000 through crowndfunder we will be able to renovate the first two guest rooms and have them easy for guests before Easter 2016. 

When we opened The Globe on April 1st 2015 we set out to achieve a restaurant that featured the finest of local produce and one that was Cornish wherever it was possible to do it. We work with the local farmers, butchers, fishermen, mussel farmers, jam makers, bakers, Brewers, distillers, and vintners. Much of our produce comes from within a five mile radius and there's not a single dish on any of our menus that doesn't include Cornish ingredients. We have a drinks menu which features Cornish products in virtually every section. When we renovated the restaurant we used local tradesmen for every job and local suppliers for the materials and this is something we would continue to do with the rooms.

In order to raise the money we are going to offer 200 vouchers for £50 or £100 each.  These vouchers will be worth DOUBLE THEIR VALUE and can be used to pay for meals in the restaurant or to stay in the rooms once they are up and running. They will be valid for the whole of 2016. So you could get £100 worth of food and drink from our Michelin Guide listed restaurant for just £50!! Or pledge £100 and get a voucher for dinner bed and breakfast for 2 people worth over £200!  And there's more.  In our entrance we currently have a beautiful word map (as seen in the video) featuring words associated with our philosophy. If the crowndfunder is successful we would replace this with a crowdfunding mural featuring the names of every single person who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign so at the whole world would be able to see it as they come and go from The Globe.

Pledge today and not only are you supporting a local business which supports local businesses, not only are you helping renovate one of Foweys oldest buildings, not only are you getting your name on the wall of fame in our entrance, but you are also doubling your money instantly and getting £100 to spend with us!

Thank you for taking the time to read our Crowdfunder presentation and we look forward to putting your name on the wall of fame in the very near future!
