ART workshops for young people and adults with learning disabilities have received a grant from Shoreham Port.

The charity Superstar Arts approached the port for a donation to help fund its ten-week, circus-themed art project.

Nicky Goldsbrough, corporate services manager, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to support Superstar Arts in their upcoming project.

“As a trust port, we focus our efforts on helping charities in our local area who do not usually receive major corporate funding.”

Superstar Arts is a not-for-profit, community interest company, based in Worthing

The charity is committed to delivering high-quality, meaningful creative projects for young people and adults with learning disabilities.

Martin Dickinson said: “Our charity offers so many opportunities to adults with learning disabilities. Superstar Arts has a number of projects in areas such as cooking, singing and drama, as well as art.

“We are extremely grateful to Shoreham Port for their kind donation that will help us to buy equipment for our latest art project. Our workshops mean so much to the people who attend them and it is thanks to local funding like this that we can continue to offer these brilliant experiences.”

As well as its art projects, the charity runs a community choir, animation project, a performance group and art and enterprise, selling crafts.
