Our club is one of the biggest, self-sustaining youth/adult/community setups in Cornwall with 3 cricket teams, 9 youth soccer teams, 4 men’s football teams, pool teams, darts teams, village evening teams (euchre, bingo, pilates), wedding reception facilities, mother/toddler groups, charity hosting events, live bands/comedy acts and regular community meal nights.
The rural parish of Wendron is the largest in Cornwall and although there are few outlets for locals to participate in sport, or even to congregate at a central venue, the club had to diversify and embrace not only the sporting community but also the socio-economic side. For over 40 years the club has achieved unparalleled success despite difficult socio-economic obstacles – acquiring land and attracting volunteers to drive forward change and develop what is now a highly respected thriving sporting and community atmosphere within the local area.
How you can help us?
All this is delivered at great cost to the club. To fund these high level and regular activities a huge social calendar is managed by its management who work hard to maintain, develop and move the club forward by operating on a sound financial platform. For this to happen money has to come into the club. At present the club’s primary source of income is bar/kitchen sales and large annual community events, thus no sport/community events = no income = a struggling club!
Therefore any donations you can give will help us get our amazing community club through this crisis.
