15/12/2019 : St Petrocs Festive Fundraiser St Michael Mount
St Petrocs Festive Fundraiser on St Michael's Mount
Join us this December for a festive celebration on St Michael's Mount, as we host a fundraising event in aid of St Petrocs*. The event will include a service held in the Church of St Michael & All Angels in the castle and will include a performance by local singers, Twin Harmony. Following this, guests will head down the castle path to the Sail Loft restaurant in the village for a delicious Festive Afternoon Tea created by our award-winning Head Chef Greg Milne. 12.00 - Walk the ancient cobbled causeway and make your way up to the castle summit 12.30 - Church service and performance by Twin Harmony 14.00 - Festive Afternoon Tea in the Sail Loft Tickets: £20 per person *St Petrocs was initiated by the Diocese of Truro of the Church of England when clergy found homeless people coming to their church doors, or to their homes asking for help.
Concerned that, at best, a bed for the night, a good breakfast, and a word of sympathy was an inadequate response to homeless people’s underlying needs, the church took action to set up ‘The Saint Petroc’s Society’. By providing accommodation, support and advice to single homeless people, St Petrocs work to end street homelessness in Cornwall. Access: Paths around the island are steep, cobbled and uneven with no handrails, so sensible footwear is recommended. Unfortunately, it is not possible to take wheelchairs and pushchairs up to the castle.
