Cornwall Glass issues tough challenge


If you have ever considered having a go at what Ray Mears and the likes of Bear Grills have shown you on the television, then here is your chance.

Cornwall Glass & Glazing has issued a challenge to all comers as they defend their 2008 crown at the forthcoming Annual Survival Charity Challenge.

Over the weekend of the of May 22-24, this year’s Survival Charity Challenge will take place in Trenowth Wood near Truro.

Fifteen teams of four people will come together and after the initial survival instruction given by the organisers, Footsteps of Discovery (Survival Matters), they will compete against each other in a survival challenge.

This will involve building shelters from natural materials in which to sleep out on the Saturday night, cooking food on an open fire and taking part in a series of survival skills competitions including a bush tucker trial. 

The organisers are looking for further teams to take on the challenge. The administration cost for the complete weekend including all food and insurance is £30 per person, everything raised above the team entry of £120 is donated to a charity of your choice.

Teams of four are invited from all walks of life (age 18 and over). If you are looking for a fun weekend, learning survival life skills and helping others in the process by raising money for charity, then please contact Tony Manley MBE on 07899928131.
