Pencarrow snowdrops support ShelterBox
February 2, 2010
All admission proceeds from the annual event this Sunday 7 February will go to the Cornish charity instead of the house and garden restoration project, the Friends of Pencarrow have decided.
There will be a children’s treasure trail around the grounds, with hot drinks and soups to follow in the cafe. Plus free parking, shop, raffle, snowdrop sales and homemade cakes and jams.
Sally, chairman of the Friends of Pencarrow and Jo, Pencarrow’s administrator, say:
“Each Shelterbox costs £490 and we’re aiming for two! Please mention our appeal to anyone who may enjoy a good brisk walk through 50 fabulous acres flanked by snowdrops,catkins and the very first camellias. After a miniature Ice Age, the first green shoots of recovery are definitely out there.”
As always, dogs will be welcome off-lead in the informal woodland with a treat waiting for them if they call in at the Pencarrow shop.
