Leading provider of Cornwall cottages available for rental, Classic Cottages, recently got involved with the local community of the county by sponsoring a charity runner from Praze-an-Beeble. 

46-year-old Andy Jukes completed his challenge of running the entire 309 miles of the Cornwall coast line back in September, and Classic Cottages was one of his sponsors, along with the Stennack Co-Op, in St Ives. Thanks to these two entities, as well as Jukes’s friends and family, the Cornwall native was able to raise in excess of £10,000, which he donated to the Children’s Hospice South West. 

The cheque was personally presented to the charity in question by Jukes himself, who was also treated to a tour of the local facilities. A representative from the charity stated that the charity runner’s work and effort had been ‘amazing’ and ‘just incredible’. Many of the visitors staying in Cornwall cottages at the time may well have spotted him on his challenging run. 

Jukes himself stated that, while most days of his running adventure were ‘a bit of a blur’, he was amazed at his own resilience to keep going each day. He attributed some of that to the professional runners who would often join him during the sessions, helping keep him motivated and giving him additional strength to complete his task. 

The Cornwall resident also took the time to personally thank all the parties who helped him in his charity endeavour of running the entire Cornish coast and raising the £10,000 he later donated to the Children’s Hospice South West. This money will now be put towards helping children with terminal diseases, who will not survive until adulthood, as well as their families. 

Running the 309 miles that his challenge called for, took Andy Jukes a total of ten days, which he completed during the month of September 2013. This distance represents the entire length of the Cornwall coastline and is visited by thousands of Britons every year who are staying in Cornwall cottages, especially during the summer months. Few, however, will have ventured out to walk it on foot, let alone run its full length, like this brave Praze-an-Beeble resident did.
