CASPN's funding manager John Moss and chair Cheryl Straffon with the Community Cashback award.

The Community Cashback award.
"CASPN recently entered a Community Cashback fund, run through local newspapers (The Cornishman and West Briton), which offered sums of money to local groups and organisations to fund projects linked to young people. CASPN proposed a scheme to involve young people in ancient sites, teach them more about the sites, and thereby create a new generation of those who would know more about their heritage and care about it. There were nearly 100 applications, which were whittled down to a short list, and then the public were invited to vote for their favourite projects. CASPN was fortunate in making it through to the finals, and received its award of £500, which was presented at an awards ceremony in St.Ives in March. We are now setting up a scheme that will meet the targets of the Project."
