When Tristram Warden launched his new online business selling alternative remedies, he had one goal in mind – to help others.

The father-of-two, from Long Melford, has pledged to donate some of his takings to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, where his son, Lucas, who has cerebral palsy, has been treated.

Tristram, who worked in property maintenance before launching his own business selling salt lamps, crystals, gems and herbal remedies, said: “I am quite spiritual by nature, so I decided to start Altars of Unity, selling alternative remedies.

“For my first year, I intend to donate 20 per cent of my profits to Addenbrooke’s, as the hospital has been amazing with my son.

“I started the business to allow me to be more of a help with Lucas because he was getting too heavy for my wife to lift. Lucas is everything; he’s a pure inspiration.”

Mr Warden said he hopes to eventually set up a charity to help people who have children with disabilities.

“Hopefully, I can help families that are struggling and make them smile,” he said. “I know myself how expensive it is to buy equipment for children with disabilities.

“Car seats, for example, can cost thousands. That’s the sort of thing I’d like to help with.”

Altars of Unity can be found on Facebook.
