Be Uplifted Bursary
We have wonderful news and are so incredibly proud to announce our charity partnership with The Sea Sanctuary - taking mental healthcare out of the ordinary, and onto the water!
As of today, Monday 4th May 2020 - we, Uplifting Products are proudly partners with Penryn based charity, The Sea Sanctuary, to support those in need of mental health support. A percentage of every Uplift 2.0 sold on our website here will go towards funding those who need financial help accessing the charity’s services.
Good for our minds, good for our planet
Uplift 2.0 is the latest creation from British inventor, TV personality and Founder of Uplifting Products, Tom Lawton.
Uplift 2.0 is a mesmerising, spiralling sculpture - powered by the sun, it generates a visually soothing motion designed to help you relax and unwind. The progressive new design is inspired by the sea’s translucent colour and hypnotic motion of the waves. Recycled fishing nets from local Cornish Hake Fisheries form the spiral’s structure and make the aquamarine colour.
Tom Lawton comments, ‘Inspired by the ocean, Uplift 2.0 inspires you to unwind, relax, and find a meditative moment of calm in everyday life. There’s a symbiosis between Uplift 2.0 and the charity, it’s a natural fit’.
The Sea Sanctuary is a unique mental health and wellbeing charity rooted in the concept of ‘blue health’. Its programmes rely on the environment and use techniques thought to be the first of their kind in the world. They use a combination of sail training, marine activities and evidence-based therapies to help children and adults who are struggling with issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, and a whole range of mental and emotional health problems.
"Based on my knowledge of this little gem of wellbeing, it will help us slide, effortlessly, into a place of relaxation and remind us to be in the ‘here and now’. As someone who has a long-standing and deep passion for the sea, if I could open my house up and invite it in, I surely would. To my mind, this is the next best thing. It seems, ostensibly, to capture the very essence of the sea; gentle, calming, blue and dreamy. I am looking forward to trialling it soon and thank Uplifting Products for their kind financial support which will help us to continue helping some of the most vulnerable people in society; those afflicted with mental ill health." - Joe Sabien, Founder of The Sea Sanctuary
Tom Lawton continues, “The Sea Sanctuary provide invaluable support to vulnerable people via their unique concept of ‘blue health’. What they do is truly remarkable and we’re very proud to be supporting them.”
For every Uplift 2.0 sold on beuplifted.co.uk, £10 will be donated to the charity and go into the ‘Be Uplifted Bursary’ to aid those seeking finical support in order to access the charity’s services.
