  • Organisations with a written constitution, articles or other form of governing document can apply for grants ranging from £250.00 to £3,000.00. Larger sums maybe awarded in exceptional circumstances.

Source of Income

The LPCF currently receives its income from one regular source. The Lestoon wind turbine planning application (PA13/08209) was approved in December 2013 and the turbine began functioning in June 2014.  Clean Earth Energy Ltd of Wadebridge, owners of the turbine, now have an agreement with the CCF to make 20 annual payments of £10,000 (RPI index linked) starting from the anniversary of the siting of the wind turbine (i.e. from 3rd November 2015). This is currently the only income for the Luxulyan Parish Community Fund (LPCF).

Grants Awarded

Dec 2016:  A grant of £1,850 was awarded to Luxulyan Youth Football Club to support the work of this new club. The funding will enable the club to purchase training equipment, goal posts and football kits.

Apr 2017:  A grant of £2,000 was awarded to Parents Association Luxulyan School (PALS) so the school could purchase 10 new iPads. This will improve the ICT provision for not only the schools pupils, but will also enable the school to start up workshops for anyone from the community to learn how to use this new technology.
