The Sir Thomas Lipton Foundation exists as a registered charity (SC041451) because of one simple belief. It is this: We cannot afford to lose the talents and contribution of any of our children, for their sake, for the sake of the prosperity of all, and for the sake of the future of our blue planet.
Whether or not children grow up in areas of deprivation or circumstances of disadvantage, should be totally irrelevant. What matters is that all children, regardless of where they come from or who they are, deserve a fair opportunity to discover and achieve what they are capable of.
What we do, is deliver a challenging maritime programme for whole class groups of 10-12-year-old children who are least likely to make those discoveries without outside help. It’s about steering them, before critical teenage years, to a better understanding of their potential, being more confident about who they are and what they can be. That’s why we call it Buoyed Up.
This last sea eagle had been widowed eight years previously in 1910, but returned faithfully every year after to the eyrie where they had raised their chicks together, to “gaze out over the wide horizon and wait.”

The questions in the Mysteries, Marvels and Miracles at Sea quiz are based on stories originally written for the annual Buoyed Up Log Books. Even if you haven’t had a chance to read them all on Treasure Seekers or in print, you can still have a go at the multiple choice quiz and go back…
Thank you to all of our partners and supporters who make Buoyed Up possible.
