A Cornish clothing brand with shops across west Dorset, will be giving more than £30,000 this year to charities.

Seasalt, which has a shop in Lyme Regis, has had each of its 63 stores nominate a charity to receive £500.

The team at the Lyme Regis shop has chosen to support Lyme Regis Development Trust with their 2019 donation.

Staff will also spend a day volunteering with the Lyme Regis Development Trust and two other charities, as well as donating its handmade window displays to schools and community groups.

With its shops spread nationwide, Seasalt is hoping to benefit multiple charities and organisations across the UK.

Deap Khambay, head of sustainability at Seasalt, said: “Community is immensely important to us at Seasalt and I am extremely proud that everyone has embraced the opportunity to positively impact more communities than ever before.”

Lyme Regis Development Trust was set up in 1998 to promote the economic and social wellbeing of the town and its residents.

The trust particularly concentrates on developing economic and social activities and facilities that will benefit the town’s residents through the whole year.

It has been involved with many projects and was closely associated with the delivery of the town’s plan, Lyme Forward.

Significant projects which have been delivered by the trust include, the Hub, the annual fossil festival, providing small business units, provision of the town bridge and LymeNet.
