All the money raised during the event will go towards completing phase two of the Therapy Centre.

Attractions on the day included something for all ages and tastes including traditional favourites like a balloon modeller, face painter and bouncy castle as well as clay pigeon shooting, a gun dog display, archery, laser shooting, a novelty dog show, swashbuckling, cannon pulling, sword-fighting pirates singing sea shanties and a traditional storyteller.

The Cornish Wrestling Association (CWA) held regular demonstrations of their art including holds and throws with some bouts of competitive wrestling and workshops for a visiting backswording club, which also demonstrated the centuries-old English stick-fighting sport.

Musical entertainment was provided by Bugle Silver Band and Kernow Pipes and Drum Band. Members of Grampound Women's Institute had a stall laden with cakes, Trewithen's Tea Room supplied a wide selection of snacks and light meals prepared with local produce, Truro Lions had its popular ‘Bacon Buttie Van' on hand and there was also an ice cream van and the all important beer tent, run by Skinners.

The day concluded with a short address by the Bishop of Truro, the Right Reverend Tim Thornton, delivered in front of Trewithen House, following a performance by the Eastern Area Male Voice Choir.

Owner of Trewithen, Michael Galsworthy said: "Trewithen has an important role to play in the local community and it was a pleasure to host this event. We fully support the Merlin Project and are delighted the event has raised so much money for the further development of the therapy centre."
