Our Benefactors

Numerous individuals and organisations have assisted at all stages of the Trust’s development, and we are most grateful for all the support we have received over the past few years. This has enabled us to repair and renovate Porthmeor, Trewarveneth and Anchor Studios, provide the funding for the Porthmeor Residency Programme, and supported the Trust with revenue funding at critical moments, therefore helping with our aims of supporting artists working in Cornwall.
