... are very much appreciated!!!
This page is dedicated to acknowledging and celebrating the wonderful businesses and individuals who support and have supported PMCG over the years. It can not be stated enough that without financial donations and fundraising, we would struggle to pay our rent, public liability insurance, legal fees and of course, fund our projects.
Please read on and support our supporters where you can - without them, we might not exist!!
Please also note that the below is in alphabetical order.
Cornwall Council are one of our main supporters and rent out to us our Marine Centre, without which we would be unable to carry out our work.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Your Shore Beach Rangers for originally setting up the group and for delivering training, from First Aid to wildlife identification, to all our volunteers and Beach Rangers. They also promote and enable interactions with other Marine Groups in Cornwall, and it is great for us to feel connected like minded people. CWT, via Shoresearch, provides support and training for our data collection activities [the Marine Surveys] which is an accurate and scientific survey of a specific part of our locality.
Keep Britain Tidy BeachCare run school group trips to Polzeath (as well as other beaches), which the PMCG volunteers are able to support. These day trips out of the classroom are a brilliant way for all involved to learn, on location, about all things beach! http://www2.keepbritaintidy.org/Programmes/Beaches/Beachcare
Link Magazine They kindly print articles about our projects and advertise our events.
National Trust The NT is a natural partner for our work and over the years we have continued to enjoy their involvement with our projects and activities. They help run events and assist us with the outside maintenance of the Marine Centre. They have installed our interpretation board and the base of our "rubbish Jellyfish". Members of the NT have been friends and supporters of our projects and events for many years.
Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery, Rock provide pasties and pastries for our volunteers after our Mega Beach Cleans twice a year. They are very much appreciated by everyone and are a special treat after a session of plastic pollution gathering!
Polzeath Area Residents Association - Every year PARA gives
not only PMCG but also our volunteer ranger a donation for which we are hugely grateful.
St Minver Parish Councils: Lowlands and Highlands have continued to support us. The money donated has been crucial in paying for the running costs of the PMCG.
Tubestation have supported us for many years, allowing us the use of the building to host talks and films and are always willing to allow us to use the marquee if we have school visits in poor weather.
To all our local businesses and shops that allow us to leave a collecting tin in their premises. Port Isaac Co-op, Polzeath Spar have collected funds for us this year and we are very grateful to them, not only for the cash, but for allowing us to be visible to the public.
Special thanks must go to all our regular volunteers. Without this small group of dedicated people the group would not be able to function.
