6 Candlelit Cornish Feasts (for a very good cause)

Some of Cornwall's best pubs and eateries are hosting candlelit suppers to support Shine for ShelterBox this winter

Got one of those friends who’s constantly running marathons and cycling across deserts for charity? Maybe you’ll manage that 10k one day but in the meantime, here’s something positive you can do for a great cause that does not involve training of any kind. If you can eat, you can help!

Shine for ShelterBox is all about feasting with friends to fundraise for people who need a little light in their lives. ShelterBox provides essential relief to people who have lost everything in disaster and war zones. And it couldn’t be easier to help out!

There are 6 Shine for ShelterBox suppers coming up at some great Cornish restaurants and pubs (and many more further afield). Book your table for one of the events below or host a fundraising dinner party of your own.
