An award-winning Cornish hotel has raised a substantial amount of money for Cornish communities with its latest fundraising efforts.

The Budock Vean, the multi-award-winning country house hotel that has scooped up numerous awards this year, has awarded its charity of choice, Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF), the results of its fundraising efforts over the last year.

Budock Vean’s owner Martin Barlow, recently presented a cheque £4,093 for the last year to the Foundation’s Philanthropy Director, Amy Buzza-Blackwell.

The money raised was the result of the Hotel guest donation scheme where guests are invited to make an optional donation at check out, the proceeds of a Gin and Jazz evening hosted by the Hotel prior to lockdown and an annual donation by the Budock Vean Hotel to support the grant-making of the CCF Business Club.

Budock Vean’s owner Martin Barlow said: "Although 2020 was a very difficult year, our guests continued to be very supportive of our fund-raising for the Foundation and we are very grateful to everyone who has made a donation.

"And with the support of our suppliers every penny of the ticket price for the Gin and Jazz evening went to the Foundation.

"We are looking forward to raising funds for the Cornwall Community Foundation again this year as we know that the pandemic has been very challenging for Cornish communities."

Amy Buzza-Blackwell, CCF Philanthropy Director comments: "We are very grateful to the Budock Vean Hotel for their fund raising for the Foundation.

"Over the last year CCF has awarded grants totalling £1.6m, double our usual total, and it’s only the generosity of donors like the Budock Vean and their guests that make this possible."
