Innovative School Fundraising
Cornwall Glass has helped to kick start a new innovative form of school fundraising for Bosvigo School in Truro, Cornwall.
Students from the school have taken fundraising to a whole new level, by having their own grants panel where they debate and decide on deserving projects in Cornwall that will receive funding. Cornwall Glass has contributed £5,000 to the fund and offered to match fund any monies that the children raise themselves through their great efforts in fundraising.
This pilot initiative focuses on supporting; Young People, Improving People’s Health and Animal Assisted Therapy. It is hoped that the children will be able to establish their own charitable fund which would be a wonderful legacy. It is hoped that this fundraising initiative will enhance the children’s skill set to include, debating, budgeting, empathy, teamwork and responsibility.
Supporting our local communities through sporting sponsorship we currently support a variety of sporting clubs, events and organisations. Our branches are keen to be a part of their local neighbourhoods.
As a group we have been the main sponsor for the Cornwall Road Running Grand Prix Series for the past 10 years. Some of our colleagues have even been known to don running shoes and take part!
