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.

Innovative School Fundraising

Cornwall Glass has helped to kick start a new innovative form of school fundraising for Bosvigo School in Truro, Cornwall.

Read More

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.

Sporting Involvement

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!
