President, Ken Terry, presenting a cheque for £100 to the head teacher of Looe Primary Academy to buy books about Cornish heritage for the upgraded school library.

The money was the proceeds of the sale of goods made by Sue Terry on stalls at various festivals throughout the year.  After the presentation the head teacher agreed in principle to organise an after-school club entitled "Young Old Cornwall" which would involve some of our members.

 

We are looking forward to working with the children, who seem very enthusiastic (and much less likely to nod off than our members!)
