Cornish park doubles its money

Two Cornish charities have each received a four-figure fillip to their fundraising efforts, thanks to an enterprising Padstow holiday park's visitor giving scheme.

Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Wadebridge Foodbank were both handed cheques for £1700 this month by the owners of Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park at Trevose Head.

The money was raised by caravanners who each donated £1 on top of their holiday costs when booking a stay at the multi-award winning park.

The total amount was then doubled by Mother Ivey's Bay owner Patrick Langmaid to create the £3400 windfall, shared by the charities.

On top of another £800 donated to each cause last March from the scheme, it means that the park has raised £5000 for the two organisations over the past 12 months.

Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park provides 230 caravan holiday homes, both privately owned and for hire.
