Penzance has a long history of supporting its community and visitors to the town have proven to generously connect with groups that need help.
The Penzance & District Tourism Association is delighted to actively promote local groups who do amazing work and help to make a difference to so many people. With the crisis we have all faced recently, it’s more important than ever for communities to help those in need who might otherwise slip through the net.
The Penzance based charity ‘Growing Links’ runs the Street Food Project and the Community Food Store; between them they accept excess produce from supermarkets and redistribute it to those members of our community who are experiencing food poverty and are otherwise vulnerable. Alongside this ‘Growing Links’ also provides support for the Women’s Refuge. These charities also have a therapeutic community garden, a youth group, and a home-school group whose members are all learning to grow organic food and flowers, this helps foster positive mental health and a connection to the outdoors. All of these things are a massive benefit to the Penzance community.
When you book your holiday to Penzance we would be so grateful if you could please donate any amount to these fantastic charities and help to make a difference in the town you are visiting.
