This is a crowdfunding campaign for Mark Cock who needs a new prosthetic leg. He is an ex-serviceman, who served in the Royal Navy for ten years. Although turned down for many an apprenticeship when he left the Navy, because he only had one leg, lost through a major accident, he managed to put himself through intense training and get himself a job with British Gas. He needs a new leg to be able to continue moving his life forward. Unfortunately the leg is going to cost in the region of £40,000. We have managed to raise £7,000 so far, but obviously have a long way to go yet. Any support you could give to someone who has served their country with such pride and determination, who now, through no fault of his own has lost a leg would be so gratefully received. Thankyou in advance for your generosity.

St Issey Primary School are holding a 'Santa Express Day' to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care. It is a yearly event that one of our pupils thought up in memory of a member of our local community who sadly passed away, but was cared for by the hospice. We will be riding exercise bikes (staff and children) to attempt to cycle the distance from here to the Hospice and singing carols in the community during the afternoon. We also have a super set of raffle prizes to be won. Everyone will also be dressed in their finest Christmas attire!

Harvey was born premature at 28 weeks and because of that he had a bleed on the brain which resulted in hydrocephalus and he had to have a shunt fitted when he was just 3 months old. When he was 2 he was diagnosed with having Cerebral Palsy. He has learning and mobility difficulties and suffers with a lots of cramping pain and spasms in his legs. He has been getting stronger in his legs and he is able to get around with a walker and tripod stick for short periods, but it is a huge effort and he is battling his own body weight and as he gets bigger and heavier he may not be able to keep doing this. Can you imagine his heart break if all his childhood efforts go to waste and his body becomes to heavy. He has been offered an operation at Bristol Children's Hospital (over 200 miles from where Harvey lives). This operation is called SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy) which will take away the pain in his legs and ultimately make it so he will be able to stand and walk independently. The operation will be carried out at Bristol children hospital but they are no longer funding it on the NHS so we are looking to raise the money for the operation, the intense physiotherapy which he will need after the operation and for any equiptment that might be needed to help with his progress. He will require 2 weeks in hospital after the operation and then he will be allowed home but he will require 6 to 12 months intense physio for the operation to be worth while which we need to fund.
We have an auction charity evening being organised so if you can donate anything to that please get in touch, we have organised a coffer afternoon between 1-3pm on the 3rd December at Lanner Village Hall if any of you could come along to the coffee afternoon that would be great and we are also looking for people to help out at different events that we organise around the county. If you can help out with any of this that would be great the links to our facebook and just giving pages are below
