Cornish Gems has chosen YoungMinds as its ‘Gems Charity of the Year’ for 2022 – pledging its support to fundraise and drive awareness of the charity’s essential work to support the mental health of children, young people, and their parents.

Members of the team are embarking on an ambitious 25K trek along the Southwest Coast Path to raise funds for the charity – as well as inviting their guests to also pledge their support by donating via the Cornish Gems website.

Emma Fashokun, Cornish Gems’ guest experience and CSR manager, said: “We believe that taking care of each other, both at work and at home, is a top priority. We hugely respect and value the vital work of YoungMinds and want to do our very best to help support their work with young people and their families.”

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 Surfers Against Sewage.
