We are proud members of the Association for Promoting Retreats (APR) http://www.promotingretreats.org/. We pay a small fee each year to the APR to enable up to three people per year to come to Treargel without suffering financial hardship to do so. Additionally if people we know, friends or family, come and stay and want to contribute, we normally suggest a donation which we hold in reserve until either we have reached our 3 bursary limit, or there is a request which doesn't meet the APR criteria. One such incident occurred recently. A friend came and used the Barn and the Piggery while we were away and donated funds to this pot. This week we were able to offer this back to some guests who definitely would not have been able to afford to come later this year but for this donation. Thank you to our friend and to the APR - a little bit of good news from our small corner of Cornwall.
