The Women of Worldwide (WoW) team was set up by Worldwide Financial Planning's Donna Hansen, Rebecca Bendle, Lynne Williams, Deborah Hale and Rosamund Derry.
Running alongside the financial year, April this year to March 2013, the team is hosting a series of events to raise money for Cornwall Hospice Care (CHC).
In the latest event local business people and Worldwide clients joined the WoW team for a boat trip from Truro to St Mawes.
During the evening the team raised an £388 from a raffle with prizes including a luxury fruit hamper from Westcountry Fruit Sales; a driving lesson from Steve Richardson; a Costa Coffee voucher from Moorview Maintenance; and a surf lesson from Newquay Activity Centre.
Tesco in Redruth also donated a £20 voucher.
The group was set up to raise money for a different local charity each year with its first good cause being CHC.
Donna Hansen, whose late mother was looked after by CHC at St Julia's Hospice in Hayle, said: "We had a fantastic time on the boat trip and everyone who came along really enjoyed themselves.
"It was a busy day for us as the team were also selling cakes to fellow advisers and staff.
"We've got lots more ideas lined up for future events and hopefully the next one will see us enjoying a chocolate and wine tasting evening!"
