For anyone who took part in the design competition or purchased our charity Christmas cards, you‘ll be pleased to know we’ve raised over £2,200 for the maritime charity, the Fishermen’s Mission.
As part of our count down to Christmas we’ve decided to give the festivities a Cornish spin, with a few little tips, some tall stories and a dash of local legend to warm you up for the big day… This is Day 11…
Whilst many of you sleep in on Boxing Day, down in Cornwall there are lots of people stripping off to their bathers for a ritualistic dip in the sea! See our wholesale manager James in the crowd below…
If you’re a lover of all things kitsch, pop on down to St Mawgan Village Hall this Saturday 1st December. There will be plenty of handmade gifts and Christmas treats to fill your stockings, as well as a vintage tea room with all your favourite cakes to raise money for Little Harbour Kids Hospice. Most of the Padstow Seasalt team will also be dropping in to get their vintage fix!
For more information see the Duchy Vintage Party website.
With autumn knocking on our doors we thought we’d have one last summer hurrah and enjoy a wild swim whilst raising money for a good cause!
How would you like to design a Christmas card and see it sold in Seasalt shops? Not only that but you could win a £50 Seasalt voucher and help raise money for a fantastic cause.
Mark Fuszard at the finish line of the Namib Desert Challenge
A few months ago we were approached by Mark Fuszard to help him raise money for Cornwall Air Ambulance. He is a paramedic on the air ambulance and was taking part in the Namib Desert Challenge – a bit of a bonkers 220km multi day endurance footrace through the desert, it is basically 5 marathons in 5 days in 40 degree heat! Of course we gave Mark a bag full of Seasalt goodies to auction off at his fundraising evening earlier this year and he has sent us a little report on what it was actually like to run 220km in the baking heat of the Namib desert…
After almost a year waiting for clear, calm conditions, Helford River Gig Club have picked their day and are currently (as we speak) rowing all the way from Helford River to the Scillies! That’s a full 65 miles, in what is increasingly turning into a rather wet day. All in the name of charity.
Our bake off in aid of the Fisherman’s Mission has gone swimmingly! A veritable cakey shoal of fishy themed cakes all in the name of charity – and a jolly good excuse to chow down on sponge over a cup of tea.
What better way to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee than by sending a Cornish contingency to take part in The Thames Pageant? Seasalt can’t be there in person but we are shipping a piece of Cornish spirit up to London, by way of stripey sailor shirts on a traditional rigged fishing boat.
