Welcome To The Charity/Organisation Pleas Help Desk
Hayle Heritage Centre will be re-opening on the 12th of April. The centre has had a makeover during winter with lots more exciting displays, artefacts and children’s activities on offer.
To celebrate our new look we are going to run a coffee morning on the 12th. Come along from 11am to take a look around the new displays and eat some yummy cakes.
We are also running a family friendly craft workshop in the afternoon from 1-3 in making paper mâché baskets (This is limited to 10 spaces so please contact us to book a place). On Saturday the 15th we will be running a drop in children’s Easter craft session from11- 3, also running all day on the 12th and 15th will be an Easter egg hunt. Children and families will need to solve a puzzle through the centre to claim their Easter egg!
A new display will explore the topic of ‘Hayle at Leisure’, showcasing objects relating to the regatta, early surfing and sport in the town. Our redeveloped ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ features WW11 memorabilia, Cornish studio pottery and more. We also have a new dressing up space where children can become historical figures from the town. A new shop area has been created offering books, cards and unique gifts, including original artwork made in the town.
This year you will now be able to watch volunteers and staff working on our collection at our ‘Heritage in Action’ area; witness the careful restoration of the Biggleston paper collection, or the cataloguing and photography of our ever-growing permanent collection.
Our website is also having a makeover; you will be able to view our previous exhibitions and events, listen to forty oral history stories, and see some of our most treasured items in our star object collection. The website address will stay the same (hayleheritagecentre.org.uk). It’s hoped that the website will launch at the beginning of April.
We rely on the enduring support of our volunteers. If you have a love of history and have a few hours to spare please get in contact. Equally, if you have any artefacts or material that you would like to donate to the centre we would be keen to hear from you.

I represent Polperro Refugee Aid, a community group involved in raising funds for child victims of war. We are currently organising a 24 hour music marathon, which will be held at the Blue Peter Inn, Polperro. The event will begin at midday on Saturday 1st April and finish at midday on Sunday 2nd April. Local musicians are giving their time to provide non-stop music during opening hours and the music will continue through the night by invite only.
Polperro Refugee Aid came about when Rosie, aged 11, saw some harrowing footage of the plight of the Syrian refugee children, fleeing their homeland in search of safety. She found it very upsetting and decided that she would like to do something to help. Rosie teamed up with friends and fellow villagers in Polperro to raise funds for child victims of war, by holding a series of events in and around the village, mainly themed around a combined love of music.
Our first fundraiser, in 2016, managed to raise over £800.00 for Refugee Aid, a charity which provides direct aid to refugees in Europe. Refugee Aid is a Penzance-born organisation with a mission to take support to refugees where it is most needed, without any large organisational costs. The donations they receive go to the families and children that are suffering in the wake of war, ecological disasters and political tyranny.
We are now pleased to be organising our second event, a 24 hour music marathon, this time raising funds for Human Care Syria. HCS are a charity dedicated to restoring stability to war torn Syria by providing immediate humanitarian aid and relief as well as being committed to the long term development of building a peaceful community. Funds raised from our event will be supporting three projects: Education, Physiotherapy and Psychological support.
You can find out more about both charities by visiting Refugee Aid and Human Care Syria
There is also more information about Polperro Refugee Aid on our Facebook and Just Giving pages.
We would really appreciate it if you could mention our event on your show.
If you need any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The market will offer a range of stalls selling items including local

The market is now being run by Krista Barden, 31, from Carnon Downs and

Harvey who ran the market for 17 years stepped down last year. Mrs Teubert
said: "We're both really excited to take on the running of the market and
support the local economy by providing a space for local business people to
sell their products as well as a place for people to buy local products.
"The market has raised more than £30,000 for charity in its 17 years. We
can't wait to work to build on that in the future. Miss Barden said: "I've
been lucky to be part of the community in Carnon Downs since I moved here
with my family as a teenager 18 years ago. "My mum Helen has run the
hairdresser next door to the village hall and we've been customers and
supporters of the market for years. "So it's incredibly exciting to now
take the market on and give something back to the community. "We look
forward to welcoming back former customers and meeting new ones. There's a
really exciting range of stalls on offer with something for everyone." For

Alzheimer’s Society’s new service ‘Side by Side’
This helps people with dementia stay connected to their communities and keep doing the things they love.
Thanks to a generous grant of £1.3 million from the People’s Postcode Lottery we are expanding the service. Side by Side now urgently needs volunteers from your area to pair with people with dementia and who are eagerly waiting to meet someone to share their interests; this could be going along to the football, taking a stroll in the park or joining a local club together.
I would urge anyone interested in making a difference by becoming a Side by Side volunteer to get in touch, visit alzheimers.org.uk/sidebyside or call 0330 333 0804 to find out more about this wonderful service.
