“A big THANK YOU to all who supported Helstonbury 2015, making it the most successful ever, with an incredible £13,483 raised over the three day event...”
Paul Turton, Helstonbury Organiser
The Helstonbury festival is a fund raising event where proceeds are donated to the local community of Helston. We support as many, wide ranging initiatives as possible, donating to projects that address the needs of individuals and groups alike. We have been raising funds for the local community since 2001. Now in our 15th year, we are proud to report our most successful event ever, having raised £13,483. The ongoing success of Helstonbury is solely thanks to the tremendous support from the local community, as well as the hard work of volunteer’s and performers alike, which make it possible.
Applications for revenue funding can be made directly to the Helstonbury organisers, Al Rideout, Paul Turton and Simon Stone. We discuss all requests and assess needs to determine if a request is viable. We are always delighted to hear from members of the local community who are encouraged to contact us and make requests or recommendations for donations. Please get in touch through the email link below.
2015 promises to be a landmark year for Helstonbury, with donations already planned for the following local causes: Helston RFC U16 – match rugby tops; Culdrose FC Merlin U11 boys – football tops; Helstonbury defibrillator (to be located on Coinage Hall Street); Epworth Hall – a new disabled access ramp; and Porthleven Skate Park.
We are very proud that Helstonbury donations over the years have helped many valid causes within the Helston community. These are just some of the individuals and groups we have helped to date.

Throughout the remainder of this year and looking forward to 2016, Al, Simon and myself remain committed to our continued support for our community. Updates of our progress will be posted here on our website. We are already discussing our plans for next years’ Helstonbury event, how we can make it even better; building on the successes of this year. It is only possible with the backing and loyalty of our volunteers, performing artists and above all, the public who attend and support the event. To all we offer our sincerest thanks.
