The Cornwall Glass & Glazing Fund was set up 6 years ago by Cornwall Glass & Glazing Ltd, where it was the company’s long term ambition to set up a charity to support and contribute to Cornish communities. The fund has invested a total of over £45,000 in community groups across Cornwall.

Mark Mitchell, Managing Director of Cornwall Glass & Glazing, said "It is really wonderful that we are able to continue to mix our day to day business activities with investing in our local community, supporting so many worthy and marvelous causes in the area we live together in. As a local family business, spanning the last four decades and now employing over 100 Cornish employees it is heartening to see some of my colleagues participating in the tricky but privileged role of grant making. There is much pleasure seeing these very deserving recipients benefiting from our and other like-minded businesses charitable endeavours, in our pursuit of wishing to put back something tangible, meaningful and lasting into our County."

The Cornwall Glass & Glazing Fund’s priorities for 2016 will concentrate on supporting organisations that assist: children and young people, elderly people and carers with an emphasis on young carers.
