Porkellis family coffee morning for charity
1:00pm Saturday 22nd September 2012 in Helston
The annual September coffee morning, organised by three members of the same Porkellis family, will be raising money for Wired Cornwall.
Sisters, April Combellack and June Tiplady, and sister-in-law Ruth Tripp, have been fundraising for the last 13 years at Trinity Methodist Church. For a decade they collected money for Macmillan, but for the last three years have been supporting different charities.
This year is the turn of Wired Cornwall, a rehabilitation centre in Cornwall that offers conventional therapies and art and craft workshops to people who have suffered from a stroke or acquired brain injury, as well as long term neurological conditions.
April said all three knew people with brain injuries and who had suffered strokes, adding of the charity: “It helps them to get on with their lives.”
The coffee morning, which will include stalls and a raffle, takes place between 10am and noon on Friday, September 28. “People support us very well,” said April, adding that she hoped they would continue to do so this year.
