Weʼve raised £40 to help fund Bodmin College's expedition kit

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
As many of you know Paul and I occasionally like to clear off down to Cornwall and go camping, this is principally because we can go to a campsite that let's us do our own thing and that thing is play silly buggers and sit around a campfire!
The last time we were down there we had the campsite pretty much to ourselves, or so we thought. When we returned the next day we had been invaded by teenagers (and their teachers) from Bodmin College doing their Silver DofE.
Great we thought, this will be a pain! We were wrong. Apart from one minor incident the kids were great and the staff were good fun as well and a great time was had by all!
I'm sure most of you think of Cornwall as a great place for a summer holiday. You're right it is; but it is also a place of quite social decline as well with no real industry there anymore.
So now we get to the core of this matter. I want your money. I'm not going to do anything for it. No sponsored this, that or the other. This is a pure unadulterated money grab. I don't care how much you give so long as you do. I want us to be able to help the DofE team continue to take their pupils out on adventures. This time, every little really does help.
I gave one of the teachers we met some money for the kit list already and I think the card I received from her says more than I can -
