Trelawny Shout 2017
11 January 2017
How are you celebrating St Piran’s Day in 2017? Cornwall Community Foundation would love you to join in with a collective ‘shout’* on March 5th, the national day of Cornwall.
What better way to celebrate than to take part in a mass singing of the Cornish anthem ‘Trelawny’, happening in as many pubs across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as possible? Spread the word and make it happen at your local – the time to start the conversation is now.
Voices of all variety, regardless of pitch, talent, age and experience, will come together in pubs across the land on the dot of 9pm, song sheet in hand, to sing their hearts out, knowing that down the road, across the moor or harbourside, the celebration of community will be echoed.
The Cornwall Community Foundation began the St Austell Brewery supported event in 2015 and it has grown year by year. Let’s make 2017 bigger still. The CCF supports projects in every village and community in Cornwall so it is as much a part of this land as shouts and pasties and pub life itself.
The Fishermens’ Friends, The Aggie Boys, Kernow King, local shanty choirs, members of male voice choirs, barber shops, folk groups and Cornish bands all turned out in 2016. Please join them, and communities the length and breadth of the land, in 2017.
The pubs themselves take on the challenge to raise money during the evening in whatever way they choose, with every penny going directly back to Cornish projects. The work the Cornwall Community Foundation enables, through the funding of a whole variety of needs, is vital to lives from the Tamar to Land’s End.
Every ‘shout’ will play a central role in our collective charitable effort. It’s not just about the fund raising, it’s about community too, and of course, the celebration of St Piran’s Day.
Please do join in. Follow Trelawny Shout on Facebook and Twitter too. Let us know anything you need to make this happen in your village, town or rural pub, village hall, social club and we will do our utmost to help you.
We can’t do it without you!
PS *(shout being the term for Cornish pub singing)
