Our talented Graphics Designer, Elly Jahnz, designed this marvellous jute bag especially for our friends at the Cornish Maritime Trust. They are a local charity that look after and sail four beautiful historic boats which of course is right up our alley! We sold these special charity jute bags in our shops so we could donate the proceeds to the Trust to help them maintain the vessels.
Last week we were very proud to see Elly visit the Trust in their home port of Mousehole and handover a cheque for £2,500!
These beautiful boats take a lot of maintenance so the money donated will help a great deal over the winter as the Trust carry out lots of work on them ready for next year’s sailing season.
Next summer why not get involved? The boats are based in Falmouth and Mousehole and they are available for anyone to sail in – fantastic if you live in Cornwall but also great for sailing while you are on holiday here. Become a member of the Cornish Maritime Trust for £25 a year and you can have access to some fabulous opportunities such as trips to France or the Isles of Scilly – some of the smaller boats are even available for you to take out yourself if you have some sailing experience!
