Help fund a Cornish language radio website

The Cornish language is an ancient Celtic language with close links to Welsh and Breton and more distant links with Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Manx. The language was very nearly lost in the 1800s, but a revival began at the end of the nineteenth century. The revival has picked up pace and now there are hundreds of people speaking Cornish, with thousands having some knowledge.

The Cornish language (Kernewek) is an essential part of Cornwall’s cultural distinctiveness – something that is of high value for business. Radyo an Gernewegva is a pod-cast weekly radio programme that aims to boost fluency to strengthen that distinctiveness.

We want to engage with you to get help in building a new website for the pod-cast. We would like a site that looks good and is interactive. The site will also be one that connects seamlessly with social media. We have very little control over our current site and we have outgrown it. To build a new one, we need £5000. This sum of money would allow us to pay for a professional to give us a professional design. We would also like to make sure it works well with SEO and attracts people to the language. Some of the money would also pay for man-hours in development time. 

As anyone who works with the web knows, getting a professional and exciting website takes a lot of time and money – both things we have not had in abundance. We would love you to help us make that change.
