CONTINUING to raise funds for local good causes, Launceston’s Community Market recently donated £200 to The Wave Project.

The Wave Project began ten years ago on the beaches of Cornwall.

The objective is to teach local youngsters, particularly those with mental health difficulties, how to be safe and still enjoy the sea.

Since then the project has expanded across the UK but Cornwall and Devon remain the busiest locations.

They work with young people who come from both Cornwall and Devon (and beyond) by running sessions on both the North and South coast.

Currently projects run at Bude, Polzeath, Newquay, Gwithian, St Ives, Bigbury, Croyde, Goodrington, Sidmouth and Westward Ho! Courses run during the Spring, Summer, and Autumn.

These projects run alongside their Surf Club which has sessions across the counties throughout the year.

2020 saw the launch of Wave Rangers volunteer scheme in North Devon. In 2021 the Adaptive Surf Hub was launched in Croyd. More information is available at

The market is open at Central Methodist Hall on Friday from 9.30am to 1pm and would welcome any suggestions for the next local charity they could support.
