Our Coach Seats for Causes campaign started seven years ago and has since seen us donate over £20,000 to a range of fantastic Cornish charities.
One local charity is carefully selected to be featured in our bi-annual holiday brochure. We then donate £1 for every seat booked from the brochure to our chosen charity.
Our current charities are:
iSightCornwall is Cornwall’s oldest charity having been founded in 1856 to support miners who lost their sight due to the hazardous working conditions at the time.
Today we are the only charity in Cornwall whose sole purpose is to support people who are blind or visually impaired, whatever their age, circumstance or condition.
There are over 22,000 visually impaired people living in Cornwall. We aim to reach these people and support them to lead active and independent lives. Sight loss can have a devastating impact which is why our specially trained staff are there every step of the way offering emotional support as well as practical advice about technology, equipment and visual aids to make daily living easier.
Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity – as well as providing practical support for the 850,000 families living with dementia, we tirelessly campaign for change and also fund vital research into cure and care.
There are over 9000 people with a dementia diagnosis in Cornwall – where we have a Dementia Adviser, Dementia Support Workers and a very popular Singing for the Brain group in Truro. We also run a Side by Side service, which matches volunteers with a person with dementia; to enable them to continue to do the things they love, such as gardening, sports or visiting local places.
