Our Charity of the Year 2019

Cornish Gems is proud to support Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust

Throughout 2019 we are supporting Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust (CAAT) in their bid to raise £2.5 million for a new helicopter.

We are fortunate that we are based in such a beautiful county, surrounded by a stunning coastline including miles of sandy beaches.  Whether local or visitor, young or old: for the half a million people who call Cornwall home, as well as the millions who visit the county throughout the year, Cornwall Air Ambulance is a reassuring presence.

The charity, which is Cornwall's only helicopter emergency medical service, flies more than 800 lifesaving missions each year and is a lifeline for residents and visitors alike.

Help us save more lives

When you are seriously sick or injured, minutes matter and Cornwall Air Ambulance need all of our help to raise £2.5 million to bring a faster and bigger air ambulance helicopter to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly by 1 April 2020.

We encourage our Cornish Gems guests to support this life-saving charity alongside us, by donating £2, £5, £10 or £25 when making a reservation through our website. 

We do hope that this is a cause that you will choose to support with us! You can read more about the work of Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust on their website –  or find them on Twitter or Facebook @cornwallairamb or on Instagram @cornwallairambulancetrust


Cornish Gems get trekking for the new heli appeal    trekking

In addition to inviting guests to make a donation when making their holiday booking, Cornish Gems will be fundraising through events and challenges such as the gruelling Trekfest in the Brecon Beacons. A team of seven from Cornish Gems took part on the Pen y Fan this summer, the highest peak in southern Britain, and trekked either 25k or 50k raising over £1700!
