Charities

Salcombe Crab Festival is a non-profit making event organised by the Rotary Club of Salcombe. Since 2016, we have raised over £40,000 for local charities and good causes.

Crabfest’s principal charity for 2019 is the Triangle Drop In Cancer Support Centre in Kingsbridge. The Centre is  staffed by experienced cancer nurses, a complementary therapist, counsellor and trained volunteers. The team help cancer patients and carers navigate through their treatment and recovery closer to home. Money raised at Crabfest 2019 will fund a complementary therapist for a year.

Previous Crabfests have helped fund:

– a new car for Salcombe Peninsular’s Community First Responders
– 2 x night landing sites for the Devon Air Ambulance
– defibrillators at Salcombe Fish Quay, North Sands and South Sands
