Cornwall Glass feels privileged to support many local charities and community projects

Cornwall Glass has long embraced the idea of community support and in 2009 our Acorn Fund was created. This grew faster than any of us could have imagined our charitable Cornwall Glass Fund was established.

As a family business with nearly 300 colleagues our commitment to the wider community grows as we grow. To date we have granted in excess of £50,000 to over 100 groups and organisations throughout the South West. Our colleagues take an active role and many of them sit on the grants panel, giving careful consideration to each application. Our fund is managed by the Cornwall Community Foundation.

Operating a complex and dynamic business with branches stretching from Penzance to London it’s such a privilege for our company to be able to reach out from the hustle and bustle of daily business life and make a meaningful difference to those around us.
