Cornwall Glass celebrates 40 years in business and to mark this milestone is awarding 40 grants of £400 from their Cornwall Glass Fund to community groups throughout Cornwall. Mark Mitchell, Chairman of Cornwall Glass, says “Being part of the community is an important part of who we are and what we do. We feel privileged to have directly supported 65 local groups who are working to improve the lives of people in their areas. In this special 40th year of our business, we wanted to do something to mark this important achievement.”

The Fund has grown and has invested more than £60,000 to 65 community projects within Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to date.
Tamas Haydu, CCF Chief Executive, comments, “Cornwall Glass are an exemplary business having invested with us over the long term to ensure they can help local Cornish communities in perpetuity. The Company’s 40th anniversary is a great achievement and marking it with 40 grant awards of £400 will go a long way in helping community projects across Cornwall.”
The challenge is how to reach all deserving groups to give everyone an opportunity to apply . Over the coming months working alongside CCF, Cornwall Glass will be hosting four drop in sessions for locals to call in and get help and advise on how to apply. Host branches will be St Austell, Redruth, Launceston and Penzance.
Letters are also being circulated to all Parish Councils across Cornwall in the hope that all communities are made aware of this grant award.
