The challenge was set: A 2.5km run, a leap from the harbour wall and a swim from the East to the West beaches at the picturesque Charlestown Harbour, St Austell and on the afternoon of Friday 29th July the Fluid Branding team did it with style!

The Coastal challenge was a fundraising event for the Vanessa Grant Trust, aiming to raise funds to build a new kitchen and classroom at the St Michael’s Nursery, Rongai, in Kenya.
The nursery and its ongoing development have come about due to the passion and efforts of Ross and Lauren Sundercombe, trustees of the Vanessa Grant Trust.

Ross became a close friend of both Matt and Miles – the directors of Fluid Branding – after he spent three years as Sales Manager at the company. Over the years, Fluid have donated towards the construction of the St Michael’s Nursery along with many other related projects.

The nursery has grown from strength the strength and due to high demand, there is now a requirement for a kitchen and new classroom to be built, with a large play area, new desks and other learning facilities.

Ross commented: “A huge thank you for all of Fluid’s efforts on Friday and for helping raise so much money for the Nursery. It’s going to make a massive difference!”

There’s still time to donate here:
