Camel Glass Charity Trek in aid of CHSW

The Camel Group team

Three men from a Cornish window business are taking on a 4 day coast path challenge to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Storeman Giles Wright, Managing Director Mat Jones and Surveyor Sam Julian from Camel Glass & Joinery Ltd are walking 100 miles for CHSW, their chosen charity of the year.

From the 24-27 March they will complete this challenge all while carrying a PVC window frame.

The 4-day 3-night coastal path route starts from Camel's Barnstaple branch to the head office branch in Wadebridge.The South-West coast path

It is set to be a mental and physical challenge for the team, with overall elevation changes of over 21,000 ft.

Their goal is to raise as much money as possible for their local children’s hospice, Little Harbour, in Porthpean St Austell. 

The hospice provides invaluable care and support to children, young people and their families with life-limiting conditions.

Mat Jones, Managing Director, said: “It’s all about getting greater exposure for the charity, so more people regionally and locally understand the fantastic work that they do.

It really is an invaluable charity, they do so much for the children and families they work with and it’s about getting that message out there to the masses.

Alice Merret, Area Fundraiser for CHSW, said: “We are so grateful to the Camel team for raising this all important awareness and money for Little Harbour.

“We really couldn’t do what we do without support from local businesses like this, and from all of us at CHSW we wish them the best of luck on their challenge.”

The team have already raised over £2000, and are well on the way to hit their £3,000 target.
