Seth and his fans raised over £3,000 for the Lifeboats (RNLI) in 2008. Ticket sales and collections at the Poor Man’s Heaven album launch in Perranporth raised £1,827.28, with a further £1,403.73 raised at bucket collections at gigs on the Autumn Tour.

“I wanted to try to do something positive in launching the ‘Poor Man’s Heaven’ album, rather than just another gig – and raising money for the RNLI felt appropriate as the new album has such a strong coastal theme.”

The fundraising was part of the RNLI’s SOS Day, to be held on Fri 30 January 2009. A portion of profits from the single release of Solomon Browne will also be donated to the charity.
