Every penny make a difference - help us support people across Cornwall by joining in with our fundraising campaign #OnaCLEARday!
#OnaCLEARday encourages as many businesses, schools, organisations and individuals as possible to have their own 'CLEAR Day' - a fundraising event of any kind for CLEAR.
What does your CLEAR Day look like?
It can be anything!
A bake off, a sponsored walk or run, a raffle, an office quiz, or bring your pet to work day – the possibilities are endless! We have some of the great ideas that have already raised funds for CLEAR below.
Whatever your CLEAR Day looks like we would like to hear about it. We would love to celebrate with you, and we can also help with resources – sponsor forms, bunting, collecting tins, pull up banners and a helping hand if you need it. There are some sample materials in our fundraising pack.
We will be celebrating all of the businesses, organisations, schools and individuals who have had a CLEAR Day through our website and social media using the hashtag #OnaCLEARday as they happen, and annually on 1st June – CLEAR’s big CLEAR day!
There are other ways to help CLEAR too, visit our website www.clearsupport.net/donate
And let’s not forget the why – every penny raised will help us prevent abuse, to raise awareness about the impact of abuse and to support children, young people and adults across Cornwall to heal from emotional trauma caused by abuse, in particular trauma that is linked to domestic abuse and sexual violence. Every working day we receive enquiries and referrals from people across Cornwall who need our help. Unfortunately, there are more people in need of our assistance than we have resources to support.
Together we can make a bigger difference for more people.
What do CLEAR Days look like?
CLEAR days come in all shapes and sizes - here are just some of the great ideas that people and organisations have come up with - all helping us support more people of all ages across Cornwall
Make us your Charity of the Year - here are some organisations who have:

Pencarrow Snowdrop Weekend - February 2023
Snowdrop weekend at Pencarrow was the perfect setting to welcome in the Spring. CLEAR was lucky to be there on the sunny Sunday 12th February. The carpets of snowdrops were the stars of the day, admirably supported by crocuses, camelias, more than a few peacocks, and even some rhododendrons, all in the perfect setting of magnificent Pencarrow House. We raised £3000 from a combination of donations on the gate and our craft and tombola stalls. More information and pictures here
