We Support

RNLI

We will be continuing our support for the RNLI. This is a cause we feel we have a link to living and working so close to the coast, but we are also indebted to them as well. In 2004 our old dog Sam fell of a 60ft cliff onto the beach below, we got cut off by the tide rescuing him and had to be rescued ourselves. You can read the full story by clicking on the 'Sam's RNLI Rescue'.
We will be trying to raise as much as possible for the RNLI. You can join us by either donating to the RNLI directly via their
donation page or by visiting the RNLI shop in the pretty harbour at Minehead.

We will offer for any of our guests with dogs a 'dog sitting' service.
If during your stay at Salad Days or Holi Moli you would like a few hours out one night, but do not want to leave your dog alone, we will come over and look after your dog for you. All we ask is that guests make a donation to the RNLI of £20 or more.

Toilet Twinning

Did you know that 1 in 3 people across the world don’t have somewhere safe to go to the toilet. Bad sanitation is one of the world’s biggest killers: it hits women, children, old and sick people hardest. Every minute, a child under the age of five dies because of dirty water and poor sanitation. Around half the people in the world have an illness caused by bad sanitation.
So this year we have decided to support Toilet Twinning which will help fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives. 
​Our twinned toilet is in Mabilabo, Mzimba, Malawi and we are proud to display our certificate in our beach huts
See the location of our twinned toilet on Google Maps

​​​​​#2Minutebeachclean

We will continue to support and promote ​​​​​#2Minutebeachclean clean through social media on ​Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. We love the idea of lots of individual people just giving a little bit of their time to clean rubbish from beaches all around the world and collectively making a big difference. Even the beautiful beach at Dunster which is well cared for has the odd bit of marine litter and plastic pollution​​
Pick It, Bag It, Snap It, Tag It 
We provide beach clean cotton bags and litter pickers at both huts, so if you are down at the beach, why not join us and do a #2minutebeachclean, remember you can use the recycling centre on site and post your photos to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.

​​​​​Birmingham Dogs Home

  Some of you may know we had a dog called Lola who we were lucky enough to find at Birmingham Dogs Home some16 years ago. Since then the home has re-located to Solihull and they are looking for people to buy bricks for the new facility. 
We thought it would be great for Salad Days and Holi Moli to purchase one or more of these bricks but we did not want to just ask our guests for money, so instead we decided to install an old fashioned sweetie machine, fill it up with goodies (if Susan leaves any) and all the 20p’s we raise over the season will go towards the cost of a brick. This way our guests get a treat and we can help out other dogs like Lola, we think that is what’s called a 'win, win’.
To date our generous guests have donated enough 20p's for us to purchase two bricks, that's £100 worth of donations, THANK YOU.
We hope you continue to enjoy the sweeties.
