SEASALT AND MIND
This year, we’re launching a partnership with Mind, the UK’s leading mental health charity. This new collaboration will signal a step up in our involvement in one of the causes we believe in most passionately.
Founded in 1946 as the National Association for Mental Health, Mind offers information and advice to people with mental health problems and lobbies government and local authorities on their behalf.
We’ll be raising money for Mind through customer-facing and commercial campaigns as well as staff fundraising projects. Our goal is to raise awareness of mental health amongst Seasalt employees and customers and help encourage and normalise discussions about mental health.
OUR CHARITY PARTNERS
Seasalt Giving has grown along with our company and we feel fortunate that we can make a meaningful contribution, both financially and creatively, to the causes we believe in.
Since 2018, we’ve worked with three key charity partners. They are Hospital Rooms, who use art to improve the wellbeing of mental health patients, Mylor Sailability, which runs sailing and powerboat sessions for people with disabilities, and the Cornwall Community Foundation’s C100 Club, which supports local community projects.
In 2020 we donated £45,000 to our charity partner Hospital Rooms. We also donated surplus fabric to Cornwall Scrubs, a community of volunteers who made scrubs for local hospitals and NHS workers across Cornwall during the summer lockdown.
We’re keen to do our bit to support emerging artists and craftspeople too, so we fund an apprentice bursary at the world-renowned Leach Pottery in St Ives each year.
We even donate 20p from the sale of every pair of single Seasalt socks to charity and during the pandemic, we’ve been making the same donation from every face covering we sell.
