FUNDRAISING DINNER & AUCTION
8th February 2024 at Boconnoc Estate;
an unique opportunity to visit one of the
South West’s most beautiful and luxurious venues
Steeped in history, Boconnoc Estate was the home to William Wyndham, Lord Grenville who married Anne Pitt and later became Prime Minister; he was also famous for abolishing the slave trade.
In 1864 on Lady Grenville’s death the Estate was bequeathed to George Matthew Fortescue, younger son of Lord Grenville’s sister, Hester, who married the first Earl Fortescue of Castle Hill, Devon. It has remained in the Fortescue family ever since.

Ex Executive Chef for Rick Stein, Stephane Delourme will be running the kitchen alongside a number of other famous chefs, yet to be revealed.
Come and meet the team from Dive Project Cornwall and find out more about our work and positive impact to young people from across the UK.
