Volunteering

Seasalt Volunteering was created as a way of giving back to the communities where we live and work. Employees across our whole business are given an additional day’s paid leave, so they can roll up their sleeves and support a local charity that’s important to them.

As well as fundraising throughout the year for our charity partners, our staff up and down the country lend a hand at local charities. In 2018 Seasalt Volunteers contributed a total of 1,026 hours to helping good causes. So far this year we’re proud to have notched up over 3000 hours and supported 129 different charities, more than doubling our totals from last year.

We’ve supported great causes in the communities we touch, working with charities ranging from Age UK to Keep Britain Tidy and everything in between. Thanks to the hard work of our teams we have transformed hospital gardens, cleared beaches of rubbish, protected conservation areas, curated museum exhibitions, helped rehabilitate injured animals, served meals to the homeless, redecorated community spaces and much, much more.

Everyone from across the company has got involved, with people from our warehouse, design studios and shops coming together. Our Co-founder Neil Chadwick and his dog Pepe joined up with teams from our Penryn and Falmouth shops to do essential conservation work for the South West Lakes Trust, at the Argal Lake Reservoir which is near to our design studios. Meanwhile Paul Hayes, CEO, and Leigh Chadwick, Co-founder, travelled to Lichfield to volunteer alongside Emma, our Guardian for the Midlands and assistant manager of our Lichfield shop, and James, our Head of Development & Engagement. They built a new pathway for local charity Lichfield & Hatherton Canals Restoration Trust, which will improve accessibility along the canal side and is the first step towards creating a nature trail as a haven for wildlife.
