Eight Wire has always been dedicated to supporting philanthropic organisations, particularly when they work to enhance Cornwall’s cultural identity. We’re very proud to work on a charitable basis for the following charities and community projects.
Truro and Penwith College Computer Academy
As sponsors of the Truro and Penwith College computer academy, we make ourselves available to advise on employment needs and commercial activities in order to help the college to continue to develop its curriculum. We also make presentations to students on careers and offer a snapshot of the business landscape within which we operate and undertake to offer work experience opportunities to students.
Young Enterprise is a national organisation that introduces young people to the business world through education and work experience programmes. Eight Wire’s own Sara Pugh was a judge and mentor at the 2010 YE Cornish Innovation awards and we look forward to supporting a new class of young entrepreneurs next year.
Restronguet Sailing Club
To celebrate the sailing club’s 75th birthday, Eight Wire devised a new brand for Restronguet and used it to decorate various promotional merchandise. We have also managed the club’s PR and produced large format posters for their exhibition at the National Dinghy Show in 2009.
Port of Falmouth Sailing Association
PoFSA and Eight Wire have been collaborators on the creation of sailing calendars, posters, postcards and the official Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week regatta handbook since 2009. The handbook is distributed to all competitors of Falmouth Week, Falmouth Classics and Falmouth Dinghy Week.
Flushing Village Club
Flushing Village club is a rare organisation serving a unique community. Eight Wire was pleased to sponsor the creation of a brand that would allow the club to pull together the various elements of its valuable community offer under a proud banner.
Part of the Port of Falmouth Sailing Association (PoFSA), Flushing’s annual sailing regatta combines exciting races in Falmouth Bay with a week’s worth of fun-filled family events. Working with the Flushing village community, Eight Wire coordinates the production of the regatta programme.
Flushing Art Week
Eight Wire works to support this annual arts festival in the neighbouring village of Flushing. Highlights from previous art weeks include art and craft workshops and outdoor theatre. We created the event’s website and produced promotional printed material.
Falmouth Tall Ships Association
The Falmouth Tall Ships Association, with the enthusiastic support of the people in the region, have been responsible for welcoming many of these sail training vessels and their crews to the port. Eight Wire is pleased to have designed and built a website and produced printed media for the association, as well as marketed the arrival of the tall ship ‘Artemis’ to the port of Falmouth.
West Cornwall Youth Trust
WCYT provide help, guidance and financial support to young disadvantaged young people in the west Cornwall area. Eight Wire is pleased to have designed a brand, built a website and produced printed media for the trust.
The Uplifting Book of Breasts
Working with a number of fantastic and generous artists, writers, photographers and poets, Eight Wire worked to create this stylish anthology hailing the female form. All proceeds from the book were donated to the charity Breast Cancer Care and we’re pleased to announce that more than £4,000 was raised.
