The Redruth branch of a tyre company has helped two Cornish charities win a share of £100,000.

Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust has been given £350, with Children’s Hospice South West getting £150 from the Kumho Tyres’ Cash for Causes campaign.

Taylor’s Tyres, the Kumho EPC (ECSTA Performance Centre) retailer in Redruth, nominated the two charities as community projects they felt deserved a donation in their area.

These projects then went head to head in a public vote to see which ones should receive the larger share.
