A CONCERT is being held to raise funds for those affected by the recent storms in Cornwall.

The evening of singing will take place at the Seahorse Centre in Pentewan on March 16 and is being organised by The Cornwall Community Foundation.

Following months of storms, the award-giving charity has organised the concert to support communities in need of urgent help.

All money raised will be spent in Cornwall in grants to those directly affected in an emergency crisis situation.

Sea shanty group Press Gang and NoteAbility are amongst the acts to have been confirmed so far, for the event at the centre which has been donated for free use.

The charity raised over £25,000 during the first three weeks of its appeal for help following the storms.

Individuals can apply for up to £250 cash support, and community groups for up to £1,000.

Tickets cost £5 and include a pasty, and are available from the Tourist Information Centre in St Austell.

For more information on the concert phone 01726 879500 or for flood relief applications visit www.cornwallfoundation.com

    A noble gesture, which most people will appreciate. Strictly speaking, this shouldn't be necessary as Cameron promised "Money is no object", but of course, when we want him to do whatever it was he promised, he suddenly decides that what he said didn't actually mean what we thought it meant. Out of all the promises he made before the general election, the only one he kept was reducing income tax for the richest people in the UK.
