School concert for sons of dead St Ives couple
PUPILS at St Ives School held a concert last night to raise money for the sons of a couple found dead in Carbis Bay.
Derisa and Jonathan Trenchard were found dead at their home in Polwithen Drive, Carbis Bay, three weeks ago.
Their son Joel, 13, is a pupil at St Ives School and brothers Chris, 26, and Joshua, 23, are former pupils.
Along with coming to terms with the shock of losing their parents, the popular brothers are also faced with difficult financial issues.

A number of collections are already running in St Ives and online to help them.
Teachers at the school contributed £1,000 in the first days after the Trenchard's deaths.
And since then a school non-uniform day raised another £1,300, according to head teacher Richard Schofield.
The money is expected to help the boys bury their parents but also help in the long term as they try to keep their family together.
Mr Schofield said: "The boys have been incredibly positive under the circumstances.
"They are obviously determined to get on and rebuild their lives and pick up where they left off before this awful tragedy happened."
Tonight's concert at the school in Higher Tregenna, which is very much the centre of this tight-knit community, will see residents of St Ives and Carbis Bay show their support for Chris, Josh and Joel.
Mayor of St Ives Colin Nicholls said: "We are coming out in force to show we as a town are very, very concerned with about the sad loss of the people concerned and want to be seen to be supportive to the children, that they might have a future in our town."
