As one of Truro's oldest and most historic buildings, we are proud to stand firm as a pillar of support for this cathedral city's cherished community. Alongside providing an unforgettable experience for our guests, we work hard to offer a little help to those who need it.

Charity of the year

Each year, we nominate a ‘Charity of the Year’, and pledge a goal amount to fundraise for this cause. For instance, in 2019 our chosen charity was Cornwall Air Ambulance’s New Heli Appeal. With help from The Greenbank we managed to raise a grand total of £34,000, from team sky-dives and a coastal walking challenge, to pub quizzes, charity auctions, and generous guest donations.

Six members of our team were brave enough to skydive for this amazing cause, raising around £4,000. Although, a decline in weather meant that only Managing Director, Ben Young, and Duty Manager, Jane Williams, were able to complete the jump.

Cornwall Community Foundation

As proud supporters of the Cornwall Community Foundation, taking care of our community lies at the very heart of our ethos. This organisation works with thousands of local community groups and charities in Cornwall. Ranging from mental health support centres and food banks to children’s youth clubs, environmental causes and elderly social events, we believe that supporting CCF is a great way for us to raise money for a whole host of worthy causes.

In 2023, we partnered with our sister hotel, The Greenbank, to raise over £8,000 for two local charities under the Cornwall Community Foundation – Penn An Dre Resident’s Association in Truro, and Pendennis Leisure Centre CIO.

Fisherman's Mission Charity Dinner

On 13th October 2022, we co-hosted a charity dinner in aid of The Fisherman’s Mission. Working to support local fishermen and their families, this is a cause dear to many a Cornish heart. Guests were sung into the Great Hall by the Mevagissey shanty group Stuns’ls, who laid down a perfect atmosphere for the evening. Showcasing the very best seafood, grass-fed meats and harvest available across The Duchy in celebration of such a worthy charity, the evening was curated by some of Cornwall’s top chefs. St. Enodoc’s Guy Owen joined us, along with Kota’s Jude KereamaThe Rick Stein group’s Stephane Delourme and, of course, the Cornwall Hotel Collection‘s very own Nick Hodges and Darryl Collins. BBC Radio Cornwall‘s Daphne Skinnard assisted in hosting the evening and encouraged many a raised hand during the auction. With some top-quality local suppliers and businesses kindly donating some incredible prizes, the evening turned out to be a huge success, raising an impressive £5,500.
