    In an Eggshell…

    St Ewe Free Range Eggs are attempting a world record: The greatest distance to carry an egg in one week, and we need your help!

    Over 5 days, two teams will race along the Cornish coast taking part in an egg and spoon race. They will conquer three legs a day, covering 300 miles over five days. One team will tackle the North Coast, with the other taking on the South Coast, meeting at the finish line at Lands End.

    The target is to raise £1,000,000 for Hospitality Action & Cornwall Air Ambulance.

    We are fortunate to live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. An area of outstanding natural beauty, filled with arguably the finest produce and talent in the land.

    The past 3 years have been hard for all, particularly for hospitality, farming, and food production. This is why the challenge will showcase Cornwall’s stunning coastline and bring together all the hardworking folk across our food production and service industries.

    Hospitality Action

    From financial worries, to housing, relationships and grief. Many of us find ourselves coming to terms with a new reality and all the anxiety uncertainty brings. For many of us a career in hospitality isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life. Hospitality Action are on hand to offer the best advice; to direct those struggling to the services and help they can provide; connecting those needing support with other organisations who can help. Hospitality Action receives no government funding and many of their traditional revenue streams have fallen away, so they need your help more than ever as they continue to support one of the UK’s hardest-hit sectors.

    Cornwall Air Ambulance

    Cornwall Air Ambulance is the charity that provides critical care to the most seriously sick and injured people in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. When it comes to saving lives, every minute matters. The helicopter is on scene on average in just 12 minutes in mainland Cornwall and less than 30 minutes on the Isles of Scilly. The paramedics and doctors provide pre-hospital critical care at the scene of the incident. Cornwall Air Ambulance receives no government funding, so the crew need your help more than ever as they continue to save lives. Your support can help to keep more families together.
