Cornwall Live - January 2021

"Underbelly of St Ives where not everything is as rose-tinted as it seems"

"Heartbreakingly the place with the highest percentage of children living in poverty in Cornwall is in the same area where property prices are among the highest and local employment opportunities are difficult, making it a complicated cycle... fortunately, rather than trying to deny that, there is one place doing everything in its power to change it and give the youths of St Ives a future they can depend on."

Cornwall Community Foundation


We would like to say a big thank you to the Cornwall Community Foundation for coming to and asking us what we do, and giving us the opportunity to discuss how we operate within our community.

Meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall


"The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall met Trustees, staff, supporters and beneficiaries of the Cornwall Community Foundation during their annual summer visit to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. CCF awarded projects were represented by the Flashlight project from St Ives, the People and Gardens CIC in St Austell and The Oasis Centre from Bodmin."

Child poverty is a largely unspoken issue in St Ives. In this article, we discuss some of the ways Flashlight operates to reduce the pressure on local young people.

Truro College, assessed music events

St Ives Times & Echo


It has been a privilege welcoming Cornwall's young musical talent to the Tower Music Project for several nights of assessed performances with Truro College. This follows our funding from Tesco Bags of Help, which enabled us to expand our live sound and lighting equipment. Everyone who performed was incredible, and we look forward to working with the Truro and Penwith College music departments again in the future. 



Groundworks, and Tesco Bags Of Help


We are extremely grateful to Tesco St Ives Bags of Help, Groundworks, and everyone in the community who voted for us. We received the first-place award of £4000, which will be used to expand our live stage and lighting equipment for 'The Tower Music Project'.
