On Wednesday 7th February, we celebrated the launch of our charity canvas shopper bag raising money for the Mermaid Centre, Treliske’s breast cancer unit.

Our Falmouth shop was host to a pamper evening which offered nail treatments from the Priory, massage from Inspiring Health and canapés from Kerra’s Catering, all local businesses.

The design on the bag features a mermaid to reflect the centre’s name and was created by one of Seasalt’s in-house artists at their design studios in Falmouth.

Sophie Chadwick, Seasalt co-founder and senior print designer, said: “My friends and I have benefitted from the amazing services that The Mermaid Centre offers on several occasions. They provide an amazing, kind and efficient service, and it is an incredible asset for all of us in Cornwall. We are very pleased to be able to support in small way, and urge everyone to buy one of our beautiful fundraising bags!”

All profits from each bag sold will go directly to the charity.

The bag will be on sale online, and in our Truro, Falmouth, Padstow, Fowey, St Ives and Penzance shops at the beginning of February, priced at £5 each or 2 for £8, with all profits going to The Mermaid Centre.
