Cornish regulatory affairs specialist TRAC has passed the £20k mark in its donations to local charities, clubs and community projects through a special volunteer project.
The Camborne-based company, which works with pharmaceutical manufacturers around the world, has now donated £22k since launching its project in which volunteers were able to raise funds for a charity or community group in return for a 30-minute question and answer session.
TRAC launched the project in 2006, to enable pharmaceutical companies to obtain feedback on patient information leaflets.
TRAC director Sarah Trethowan is delighted that such a large amount of money has been raised. She said: “When we came up with the idea of running the volunteer project we really didn’t know if it would take off, but are absolutely thrilled that we have been able to donate £22k to good causes and community projects in Cornwall.”
With the project now coming to an end, TRAC is continuing its charity work by becoming a member of Cornwall Community Foundation‘s 100 Club, which has been launched to enable businesses in the county to help fund grass roots organisations and projects.
