Community Spirit & Latest Company News

Community Involvement

At Colston we enjoy being part of the community. We understand the importance of integrating in the community and supporting it as much as we can, as part of the Cornwall Glass Group it is something we all feel is important and we invest each year in worthy community projects, clubs and sporting teams.

Sporting Commitments

Within the Cornwall Glass Group we support local sports teams with sponsoring their sporting efforts including the Cornwall & Somerset Road Running Series & Redruth Rugby Club.

We understand the importance of sporting teams in the community and the benefits it brings. Not to mention many of our colleagues being avid supporters and participators of many of the community sports teams.

We proudly sponsor Bristol Rovers Football Club!

Education & Job Creation

We actively encourage development within our team of their skills, knowledge and understanding of our industry as well as their personal development. We range from apprenticeships, graduates, skilled and trained professionals in our team, which enables us to provide you with the best possible service. From highly experienced, long serving professionals to the newly qualified, eager members of the team, each continue to build the Cornwall Glass Group.

The Cornwall Glass Fund

The Cornwall Glass Fund is our charitable trust fund managed by the Cornwall Community Foundation. The fund grants sums of money each year to deserving community and charity organisations locally and regionally each year, with the intentions to help ensure a sustainable future in the community. Cornwall Glass developed the fund 4 years ago with the ambition to contribute to the community. 

Mark Mitchell our Managing Director: "we recognised the need and importance of putting something tangible back into our local community which was both sustainable and would make a real difference, providing the local community which we have served for decades with much needed funds, support and awareness”

With the recent wave of grants, 22 charities were awarded approaching £20,000 to help continue their work, projects and sterling efforts, enabling them to offer new services and reach more recipients throughout our county.

We also belong to the Cornwall 100 Club, Devon 100 Club & Somerset 100 Club which enables us to contribute further to the communities we serve and make a long lasting difference.
