Helston builder's Flora Day decoration generosity helps charity
12:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in Cornwall
The budget set aside for decorating the Guildhall for this year’s Flora Day celebrations will be handed to charity, thanks to the generosity of a Helston builder.
The town council had budgeted £500 for the work, but Steve Pascoe of Pascoe Building Services has carried out and paid for the decoration, as in previous years, but has not charged the council.
Mr Pascoe requested instead that the council give £500 to the Children’s Hospice South West.
Calling the gesture “admirable”, councillors at last Thursday’s meeting put on record that they were very grateful for Mr Pascoe’s generosity and that they would be happy to pass the money on to the “absolutely excellent charity.”
