Wheal Jane continues charity and community support into 2015
Whilst our support for various local organisations and clubs has continued through 2014, we are delighted to have added Little Harbour Children’s Hospice South West to the list, and to be supporting this organisation for the first time during 2015. We watch and constantly admire the amazing work the staff at Little Harbour do in “making the most of short and precious lives across the South West”, to use their own words. We are very pleased to be making our own contribution to their fundraising efforts.
Meantime, the One And All Youth Cycling Academy have now been using the Wheal Jane site for over four years. The club has run, on average, 45 sessions a year on the site during which over 100 young people have benefitted from the traffic-free area to practise as beginners or develop cycle racing skills. In four years of using the site, the club has clocked up 7,200 hours of individual cycle training, ensuring that our youngsters can enjoy safe cycling on our roads, and hopefully breeding Cornwall’s own future Olympic hopefuls.
Our support for Carn Brea Storm Netball Club has continued, and it is wonderful to see the club continue to grow from strength to strength under coach David White, BBC Radio Cornwall. The full report on their progress this season will follow soon.
With the days already lengthening, we are all looking forward to the arrival of spring and the first full season for our link up with the Cornwall Butterfly and Moth Society, and we look forward to working with them in their efforts to protect and enhance the wildlife habitat here at Wheal Jane. We are also grateful to members of the Society for providing wildlife photography which we have incorporated into the Wheal Jane Group’s calendar for 2015.
