BBC Radio Cornwall interviews Alex Polizzi on being a Foundation donor

The BBC Radio Cornwall Make A Difference campaign  shines a light on great examples of Cornish communities helping their neighbours. Throughout the coronavirus crisis, Radio Cornwall Make A Difference has been supporting the Foundation by interviewing and visiting projects who have received grants from the Emergency Fund, as well as hearing from donors to the Emergency Fund.

As part of Make A Difference, breakfast presenter James Churchfield interviewed Hotelier and TV presenter Alex Polizzi  asking why she donates to the Foundation. To listen to the interview click here.

Victoria Gould, Senior Journalist – Communities, commented, “BBC Radio Cornwall’s Make a Difference campaign is all about celebrating the amazing efforts being made by our communities to help people when they need it most. Since the start of the pandemic we have been able to broadcast countless stories of people who have stepped in and stepped up to provide practical aid, emotional encouragement and hope in some extraordinary times. As part of this campaign we are proud to be supporting the Cornwall Community Foundation by celebrating the difference its fund has been able to make to grass roots charities and the people they work with across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.”

Jeremy Ward, CCF’s Development Director, says, “This is a wonderful initiative. We are very grateful to BBC Radio Cornwall for their support during the crisis not only for us but also for the many supported projects who have been interviewed. It’s such a good opportunity for them to both showcase their work and explain about the challenges they and the people of Cornwall face.”
