Back in the midst of a Very Stormy Night we had one of the best NYE party a girl could ask for. On saying this, only about 30 people turned up because the weather was so awful and the new Covid-19 variant has just been announced.
A couple of nights leading up to NYE, the food was being prepared and cooked, DJ was setting up the play lists and the campsite was filling up nicely. We were rocking and ready to go waiting for the crowds to arrive but, then came the announcement of another dreaded lockdown was waited upon from Boris!
Well the lockdown didn’t happen but the people of Cornwall were playing it safe and stayed home. Well I must say I was worried. As a hospitality business we needed the income. Christmas had already succumbed to the Covid 19 pressure with companies not being able to afford Christmas Parties and customers staying home and safe.
However, NYE did have 30 customers and those guys counted! We had to make sure they had a great time. The music boomed, food was eaten and the wine flowed. The whole intent for night was to raise money for Finn’s Army. We collected and ticket donations were added.
Finn’s Army is a local charity who’s mission is to bring some light into the lives of very ill and life limited kids in Cornwall via an Ipad lending library in the hospital. They installed a library 7 years ago and are now raising money to replace the old technology with new.
Im really pleased that we were able to raise a massive £250 from NYE despite the weather, Covid and lack of customers.
Jo Mannix, our Lunchtime Front of House Manager was able to go to a charity event in Camborne and hand over the money. Nat Mitchell, representing Finn’s Army was very grateful for the money and said it is going towards the new library.
