Cornish royalty has given his thanks to the voluntary sector after last week's volunteers week by recording a short little lesson in the Cornish language.

Ed Rowe, aka Kernow King, offered his support following a busy schedule of taking Pasty Man and Pastry Girl to Cornwall’s care homes, schools and community groups.

Cornish actor Rowe recorded the short video to support the voluntary sector and the video is part of the #IAmCornwall campaign.

Cornwall Voluntary Sector Forum (VSF) is running the campaign which aims to make Cornwall’s voices heard when the G7 summit happens this weekend

The voluntary sector charity is organising an alternative G7 summit, ‘Co-creating Cornwall’s Future’ to focus on the work the sector does to mitigate the inequalities Cornwall faces.

Anyone can submit their video to be included in the opening address of the conference.

Cornwall VSF CEO Helen Boardman said: "We wanted to flip the power structure of the actual G7 summit.

"Cornwall is special because of its people.

"You don’t need to be rich or famous to have good ideas.

"So we thought, why not have the people of Cornwall open the conference?

"We are delighted that Ed showed his support, as a Cornishman passionate about equity in Cornwall."

#IAmCornwall is a collaborative video project to represent the people of Cornwall.

The complete video contains over 60 people’s recording of what Cornwall means to them.

It will be used to open an alternative G7 conference called Co-creating Cornwall’s Future which will be held online via Teams today June 11.
