Pudsey's Grants for Cornwall
Pudsey!
Numerous organisations in Cornwall have received BBC Children in Need grants in the last year

The BBC's massive fundraising night returns on Friday 19 November 2010. All over Cornwall events are being planned.

Last year hundreds of thousands of pounds was raised in the South West through a variety of activities of all sizes.

A lot of the money raised in Cornwall returns to the county, with many organisations benefiting.

All the charities that receive grants from Pudsey must be linked to help children and young adults.

In February more than £170,000 was awarded to two charities in Cornwall.

Cornwall Advocacy is a registered charity that provides free independent help and support to people with a learning disability throughout Cornwall. The organisation is receiving a grant for £113,630.

The service helps people with disabilities to make their own choices, speak for themselves, and find all the information they need. The charity provides advocates who help the young people find their voice, as well as offering confidential support.

TravellerSpace is an independent voluntary organisation supporting Gypsies, Irish Travellers and New Travellers in Cornwall and the South West to access the services and opportunities available to the wider community and to have a voice in decision and policy making processes.

The west Cornwall based charity will receive £57,716 for their Playbus Project which will see them working further with Gypsy and traveller communities.
