Our local heroes in action on the cliffs

How Did it All Start?

The idea for the event was born back in the summer of 2017 following in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. The resort got together with the Rotary Club of Redruth simply with the question – what can we do to help?

We offered some respite to the emergency crews and their families involved on that terrible night and invited them to come stay with us for a festive holiday in December 2017. During their week’s stay as part of the activities, we planned a dinner and party and invited lots of local crew members to join in with the London crews, to show our gratitude for their work too

It was such an uplifting and heartfelt event and we had such an overwhelmingly grateful response from the local crews who attended, we just knew we had to do it again…

We’re now in the third year of this wonderful award and looking forward to giving our local heroes a night to remember
