For the third year running the charity event ‘Trelawny Shout’ is taking place on St.Pirans day (5th March) across Cornwall.
Sadly the first town in Cornwall, Saltash will not be represented unless the community can convince a local pub or club to host the event this Sunday!
The Ploughboy Inn was to participate in the mayhem which would have began at 9 pm this Sunday.. But due to a lack of local support and marketing have had to sadly pull out of the event.
Can you ask your local landlord if they can help?
Gail got hold of us and said
‘I am a Cornish expat living in Plymouth, and desperate to join in with the Trelawney Shout. The event at the Ploughboy appears to be cancelled, so if there’s another Saltash pub that will take up the challenge, they will have my undying gratitude, and I expect there are numerous people on the Saltash side of the Tamar that are equally bereft. Is there a Saltash publican who can come to our rescue? No need to book singers, or anything, just play a youtube video as loud as possible at the crucial time. We can all raise funds for the Cornwall Foundation at the same time.’
Can Saltash help and bring Cornwall back to the Town and make money for charities at the same time?
The Cornwall Community Foundation (CCF) is once again encouraging people to join in the Trelawny Shout at pubs across the Duchy on St Piran’s Day, March 5th 2017.
Since the event’s inception, it has raised thousands of pounds for charities.
So far 90 pubs across the county have signed up for the Trelawny Shout were pub regulars join musicians at 9pm to sing The Song of the Western Men, more popularly known as ‘Trelawny’.
A shout is a term used for Cornish pub singing, and there’s always plenty of that going on this side of the Tamar.
But the Trelawny Shout is a little different. A hundred pubs, a thousand voices, one song, one magical hour.
It would be great if we could convince the Ploughboy Inn that they do have the community support or maybe another pub in Saltash could come forward and help raise money for some great causes on St.Pirans Day.
Pubs taking part include the Jubilee Inn, Pelynt, the Par Inn, the Who’d Have Thought It, St Dominick, the Safe Harbour and the Ship Inn, Fowey, and the Rashleigh Arms, Charlestown.
Perhaps by lending your voice to join us and hundreds of others in pubs across Cornwall as we hold the third ‘Trelawny Shout’ for charity.
