A CHILDREN’S charity was supported by Shoreham Port, in lieu of sending Christmas cards.

Every year, the port donates to a chosen Christmas charity and this year, it supported the Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.

The charity raises money for the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, and has been supporting children for more than 45 years.

Rodney Lunn, chief executive at Shoreham Port, said 2013 had been a busy and productive year in Shoreham harbour.

“We look forward to facing new challenges in 2014 and seeing the development of key projects that have been in planning this year,” he added.

Trade picked up from July and continued to be busy over the Christmas period.

The port will be announcing the results of its poetry competition this month, following the award-winning success of its community art project at Southwick railway station early in 2013.

The winning artworks are now on display at the station and the winning poems will be joining them later this year.

The winner will be given a port tour and a tug ride for two, followed by lunch.
