TRIG contributes annually to the Gwinear-Gwithian Sustainable Community Fund, which allocates grants to local not-for-profit organisations that focus on social inclusion and best sustainability practices.
A grant for the Friends of Connor Downs Academy Rainwater Harvesting and Distribution System was completed in 2020. The project aims to provide facilities and resources to enhance the education and wellbeing of the children at the Academy.
Recycling rainwater has benefited the school immensely by reducing the need to use mains water, while demonstrating to the students how rainwater is collected and then distributed within the area. Students are also educated in subjects relating to the weather, sustainability, and protection of the environment. A timed irrigation system ensures plants are watered when required, allowing the children more time to nurture their growing areas and the plants and vegetables they grow.
