We have been quick to respond to feedback from local residents by making a generous donation to Shoreham Harbour RNLI Lifeboat Station.

Our South Thames business unit, which is building new homes just down the road from the harbour at Shoreham Crescent, off Upper Shoreham Road, has given £250 to the life-saving charity.

Lifeboat coxswain, Steve Smith, says: “All the lifeboat crew and shore helpers, apart from the full-time mechanic, at Shoreham are volunteers and on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We receive no Government funding and rely on voluntary donations, legacies and fundraising.

“We’d like to thank Taylor Wimpey for this generous donation which will help us continue our work saving lives at sea.”

There has been an RNLI lifeboat station at Shoreham Harbour for 151 years. The lifeboat station and its state-of-the-art Tamar lifeboat on Kingston Beach consists of a large boat hall, crew training room, proper drying facilities for wet crew kit, changing facilities and a viewing platform for the public.

Susan Joseph, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Thames, says: “Shoreham Harbour RNLI Lifeboat Station does an amazing job saving lives in the surrounding waters, and as a local housebuilder we’re always keen to help worthy causes in the communities where we build.

“We’re delighted to be able to support the local lifeboat crew and help them to keep up their tremendous work!”

There’s a selection of two and three-bedroom properties currently available at Shoreham Crescent.
