14 th Jun Jonathan’s Challenge
TRAC director, Jonathan Trethowan is cycled 200 miles across Cornwall in just 3 days!
The challenge raised funds for Cornwall Air Ambulance, a charity that exists to help relieve sickness and pain, with the provision of an air ambulance for the people of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. In 2015, the aircrew attended to 710 emergency missions which wouldn’t have been possible without charitable donations from initiatives just like this!
Jonathan was joined in this ‘Tour de Cornwall’ challenge with friend and fellow cycling enthusiast, Jamie from Eight Wire. Together, the pair aimed to raise over £1200 for Cornwall Air Ambulance.
“…Inspired by Imerys fundraising initiative for Cornwall Air Ambulance, I wanted to run a potato growing competition as a fun way for people to donate! In exchange for your £5 donation you will receive a seed potato which you can collect from our offices at TRAC on or after June 28th. The heaviest potato wins!
It’s great to see that so many people from the businesses based at the Pool Innovation Centre have already signed up for the potato growing competition in support of Cornwall Air Ambulance. Good luck with your harvest everyone!”
Every penny of your donation went straight to the charity. Thank you to all that donated to this fantastic charity and supported Jonathan and Jamie’s challenge. You can visit Jonathan’s JustGiving page where you’ll also find the potato growing T&C’s:
