The Passmore Edwards Institute could not continue to thrive as a community resource without the generous support of donors. The following have all made generous donations of money or time and the trustees are extremely grateful to them.

Our annual accounts are inspected to the requirements of the Charities Act 2011, by Jennie Opie at Bickerstaff & Co.

In 2017 the Trevithick Room was upgraded with lovely new curtains, 80 comfy chairs and a brand new carpet. The chairs were obtained by the Hayle Film Club and the carpet was donated by TJ’s Carpets Ltd of 58 Mellanear Road, Hayle (01736-757540).

The trustees are extremely grateful for their support.

On 4th December 2007, the Institute received an offer of £34,756.50 from the Hayle Townscape Heritage Initiative towards repair and replacement of the roof.  The Institute will add its own funds to enable the work, which will cost close to £60,000, to proceed.  Repair of the roof stabilised the building and provided a sound basis for further restoration work.  It secured the building for the use of the people of Hayle and the surrounding area for another one hundred years.

We are indebted to: The Heritage Lottery Fund, The European Union and the Objective One Partnership for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, South West of England Regional Development Agency, English Heritage, Penwith District Council, Cornwall County Council, Hayle Town Council and the Guinness Trust Group
