As a firm, each year we select a charity that we wish to support. In selecting a charity we aim to raise funds which will be spent locally and ideally be directed to a specific project.
For 2016 we are raising funds for the Cornwall branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association, a charity that has a personal connection to me as a cousin of mine recently lost his fight to this disease. We hope to raise in excess of £1,000 and this will be used to provide specialist facilities for those affected by MND.
Our first fund raising enterprise is to enter a 5 person team into the Storm Force 10 on 24 January, a 10 mile road race starting from Camborne Science & International Academy, taking a rural undulating route around the country lanes to Leedstown and back . The KS team consists of Lisa, Tiffany, James, Joe and myself (mentioned last for a very good reason!). It is fair to say that we are not looking to win any medals, but finishing and raising some funds for our charity is our aim.
