Gems donates to SAS


Holiday home company Cornish Gems has presented environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) with a donation of £3,326.

Cornish Gems, which offers a portfolio of over 200 holiday properties in Cornwall, chose SAS as its 2021 Gems Charity of the Year – pledging its support to fundraise and drive awareness of the charity’s essential environmental and conservation work.

The donation from Cornish Gems will directly support SAS’ campaign for clean water, an end to plastic pollution, action on climate change and conservation education in schools.

The Gems Charity of the Year initiative began in 2018 and has so far raised over £17.5k for worthy causes, with donations being shared with the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the Cornwall Air Ambulance, the RNLI – and now Surfer’s Against Sewage.

Emma Cowley, SAS corporate partnerships officer, said: “We’re so grateful for the support from Cornish Gems, who chose Surfers Against Sewage as their charity of the year for 2021. Not only did Cornish Gems fundraise throughout the year, but they also got involved in various aspects of our work, including running their own beach cleans and promoting our Safer Seas & Rivers Service App for real-time water quality reporting.”
