One scone at a time

Proud to acknowledge its roots, The Cornish Company has teamed up with a local charity.

As a company with obvious vested interests in Cornwall, The Cornish Company likes to keep itself in tune with the community and is constantly asking how it can help local people and businesses. After all, we all have to pull together to make this world a better place, especially if through dint of hard work or luck, fortune has seen fit to place you in a position to exercise your philanthropic function.

As a consequence of this laudable stance, The Cornish Company’s most recent Corporate Social Responsibility venture has been to support Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), working in partnership with the charity on its ‘Big South West Cream Tea’ campaign. The aim is to raise as many funds as possible by getting family and friends to enjoy a cream tea, by giving customers the option to add a donation to their order, which is on course to raise £5,000 for the charity by the end of August. Operating throughout Cornwall, Devon and Somerset it provides care for children with life-threatening conditions along with professional family support services. They offer a home-from-home, where children with life-limiting conditions and their families can take a short break to recharge their batteries in a homely, warm and welcoming environment. 

Tom enthuses: “We’ve been absolutely blown away by the support our customers have shown CHSW and would like to thank everyone who has donated; the work that this hospice does for our local community is invaluable and we’re honoured to have raised vital funds for the charity.” He goes on: “Cream teas are a great way to keep in touch with old friends, show someone you’re thinking of them or to remember happy times by the coast.”

The Cornish Company continues to grow since its inception in 2020, but one of its core values – a determination to support the community – will always remain the bedrock of its ethos.
