Cornwall Glass celebrated 40 years in business and to mark this milestone we awarded 40 grants of £400 from our 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.”
