Cornwall Deaf Community Centre has received £1k from the business club of the Cornwall Community Foundation towards an automatic front door.

C100 members Gemma Elloway and David Bullen from Swallowcourt Ltd, and Amanda Williams from Alban Digital, visited the Camborne-based project, which provides an invaluable service to deaf and hearing impaired adults, children, their friends and families in Cornwall.

They have close to a hundred regular beneficiaries, and organise a range of social events. However, the centre has several members who use wheelchairs and at present cannot access the club.

“We were delighted to be so warmly welcomed on our visit to the Cornwall Deaf Centre,” said Williams.

“It was a superb to see how the Deaf Community are such a support and encouragement to one another and how much difference the CCF makes in the local community.”

The Cornwall 100 Club has invested a total of £36,706 into 25 community projects in 2016. Since its inception over eight years ago, C100 has invested more than £200k into communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, supporting over 100 local projects.
