C100 Club Member The Headland Hotel raises more funds for CCF

Newquay’s leading hotel, The Headland, is targeting its future charitable activities toward supporting local communities, through fund-raising for Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF). The Headland has a track record of supporting charities, having raised more than £45,000 for the National Trust in recent years.

Guests are invited to make an optional £1 donation at check out, with the vast majority more than pleased to support the initiative.  Hotel Managing Director, Darryl Reburn, says, “ We are keen to support Cornish communities with our charitable giving. Our staff live in Cornwall, our business works with Cornish suppliers and of course our guests enjoy a wonderful experience holidaying in the beautiful environment of Cornwall.  So it is a really good fit for us to work with Cornwall Community Foundation who support small local community organisations who are working to make Cornwall an even better place to live and work.”

In addition to the guest donation scheme, the Headland Hotel have joined the CCF C100 Business Club. The Business Club is a group of business committed to supporting their local communities.  Members each make an annual donation that is pooled to form the C100 Business Fund, managed by CFF. Local community groups apply to the Fund for support for their projects.

At it’s most recent Grant Panel meeting, the Business Fund awarded more than £19,000 to ten Cornish community groups.  Members also meet regularly to share best practice in how they can work together to strengthen Cornish communities.

CCF Chairman, Jane Hartley, Chairman Chief Executive, says, “We are very grateful to the Headland Hotel for their fund raising for the Foundation.  The guest donation scheme is a great example of eliciting immediate support from people who have had a great experience of everything Cornwall offers.

Commenting on The Headland’s membership of the C100 Business Club, Chief Executive Tamas Haydu adds, ” We are delighted also to welcome the Headland as members of the C100 Business Club.  The charitable contributions from our members make a real difference to the lives of Cornish people.”
