Support for Rotary’s ‘Miles of Hope’ Campaign

In support of their Chairman Paul Durkin, Cornish Pirates players have been keen to promote Penzance Rotary Club’s ‘Miles of Hope’ campaign.

‘Miles of Hope’ is an urgent fundraising campaign to raise money and support those who are most hard hit by the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic here in the far west of Cornwall.

To help Penzance Rotary Club relieve the financial and psychological distress of families hardest hit by the current pandemic, please visit their Miles of Hope campaign at:


It is very much hoped that you can help by donating, by fundraising or by promoting this campaign.

Hundreds of households here in the far south-west have been severely affected by the economic impact of ‘Lockdown’, a period during which Cornish Pirates’ Chairman Paul Durkin was President of Rotary Penzance.

Many households have lost their only income, failed to qualify for state benefits and are now experiencing food-poverty. They need ‘OUR’ help right now.

Penzance Rotary Club has issued grants to around 120 households so far and has deposited many thousands of pounds on account at Penwithian Cash & Carry for the three local foodbanks to draw down. Along with grants to other local welfare groups, the total donated to those in need through Rotary Penzance will soon exceed £10,000.

This support has changed lives, but the funds are running out and we cannot just turn our backs now.

Given help the Miles of Hope fundraising campaign will ensure that the support can continue.

Together, the pounds donated will make a world of difference to desperate young parents and to the lonely. We can help put food back on tables, reduce anxiety and prevent families from breaking apart.
