Cornwall Heritage Trust (CHT) has joined up with five Cornish businesses who are helping to fund an ongoing grants scheme to support transport costs for school trips.
 
Primary schools in Cornwall can now apply to the Trust for funding for transport on visits to heritage sites in Cornwall, or visits with the purpose of developing awareness and enhancing appreciation of Cornish Heritage.
The five businesses financially supporting the scheme are:
  • Roselyn Coaches of St Blazey, Par
  • Cornish Gems of Threemilestone, Truro
  • Cornish Lithium of Penryn
  • Duchy Hot Tubs of Truro
  • Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens of Penzance
These organisations are now “Heritage Friends” of the Trust and are financially sponsoring the Schools Transports Grants scheme.
 
According to the Cornish Times, the grants have helped to fund over 400 trips to Cornish heritage sites and have benefited over 17,000 Cornish primary school children.
