Our commitment to the community

27th Mar 2020

In these challenging times for everyone, we want to continue to support our local communities and charities as best we can.

We donated scented narcissi from the Isles of Scilly, originally destined for our female guests on Mother’s Day, to people in the community with the help of Age UK and Newquay Day Centre. Find out more.

With a little help from Jack Stein, at The Cornish Arms we donated free roast dinners to the elderly and vulnerable on Mother’s Day.

We delivered fresh produce to St Petrocs Homeless Society in Truro.

Many of our team have signed up to be NHS Volunteers.
