Shoreham Port elected Adur Special Needs Project (ASNP) as their Christmas Charity for 2014 and were delighted to make a donation to the charity. In addition to the Christmas donation, staff at Shoreham Port held a Christmas Jumper Day in aid of the charity.
ASNP has been changing the lives of local children and young people with special needs who are aged five to eighteen years across the Worthing, Lancing and Shoreham area for over 20 years. While the youngsters enjoy fun, stimulating and challenging activities in a safe and caring environment, their families benefit from valuable respite. As with many small charities, ASNP relies very heavily on donations and funding from outside organisations in order to maintain their valuable service to members and their families.
Katie Orchin, Marketing and Communications Assistant at Shoreham Port said, “We have been delighted to donate to ASNP this year as our Christmas Charity. Each year we aim to make a donation to a group in the local community and support them in their activities.”
Chief Executive, Rodney Lunn added, “We applaud the important work that this charity undertakes and we wanted to help them give their members a special Christmas.” He continued “We all came to work on the 19th December in our festive jumpers, and made a donation for doing this. It was a great way to join in the Christmas spirit and raise money for this very worthy cause.”
“We have been really touched by Shoreham Port’s generosity”, said ASNP Administrator, Yvonne McKeown. “Without this kind of local interest and support our job would be much harder. It is not as easy to get essential funding for our work these days, so any donation of this nature is very gratefully received.”
