A VILLAGE community shop which will donate all its profits to charity is to open soon at Polyphant, near Launceston.

This particular shop will not only stock all necessities for locals' convenience, but all its profits will be going to charity.

The 3 Cows on't Green, as it will be known, aspires to be in the forefront of the local community, not only being a central hub for the local population but to give back to those around by way of donating all its profits to local charities.

The 3 Cows on't Green will be a strong supporter of Cornwall Air Ambulance and Help for Heroes as well as regularly donating to different local charities.

Over the Christmas period managers Joanne D'Entrecasteaux and Stuart Bruton turned the premises into a grotto for local children and children of the staff at Bowden Derra Park, a local residential care home.

After Santa had been and given away free gifts, there was a surplus of presents for children aged up to 10.

Cornwall's Little Harbour Children's Hospice was asked if it wanted the presents and Judy Pride, a community fundraiser, accepted on behalf of the children's hospice.
