CleanEarth, renewable energy specialists based in Wadebridge, and Ian and Sarah Hodge from Pengelly Farm, presented a cheque for £10,000 to Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network (WREN) at the Royal Cornwall Show on Friday 5 June.
WREN will distribute the money to 19 local projects in the St Breock and Wadebridge area which enhance the community life of the area. The grants vary from £100 to £1000 and are spread between a range of beneficiaries, from Cornwall Young Farmers to a local arts and crafts group.
Kevin McCormick, CleanEarth, said: “CleanEarth is passionate about supporting the local communities in which we operate throughout the UK and we are delighted to be supporting so many good causes close to our home in Wadebridge. We have committed to making an annual contribution of £10,000 over the next 20 years so the Pengelly Community Wind Turbine Benefit Fund will support many more worthy local projects and organisations in the future.”
