St Austell Brewery has donated £16,743 to Cornwall Air Ambulance after raising funds from fish and chip sales throughout 2022.

For every portion of fish and chips ordered by a customer in one of the company’s Cornish pubs, 25p was donated to its Charitable Trust.

St Austell Brewery’s Charitable Trust has been supporting local charities, good causes, and individuals in need across the south west since 2003. Through team fundraising and contributions from the business, the trust has raised close to £950k with hopes to reach the £1 million milestone this year.

Cornwall Air Ambulance responds to over 1,000 missions every single year, providing critical care to patients who are seriously sick or injured across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Julia Jeffery, corporate fundraising officer at Cornwall Air Ambulance, said: “We are incredibly grateful to St Austell Brewery and their customers for this amazing donation, and we want to say a huge thank you.”
