The Seaford Lifeguards have said a huge thank you to McCarthy and Stone after it offered a helping hand by donating money to help train and run important seafront operations.
The developer, which is selling a range of assisted living apartments at Eversley Court on Dane Road, has offered £9,000 to the group of volunteers who work throughout both the spring and summer seasons keep Seaford Bay free from danger.
Peter Gwilliam, Chairman of Seaford Lifeguards, said, “We’re delighted to have been beneficiaries of McCarthy and Stone’s generous donation. Being a voluntary organisation, every penny we receive makes a huge difference to us, so this money will certainly go a long way to strengthening our already world-class Lifeguard Service and training centre, which offers rescue and medical training across the UK.” Seaford Lifeguards were established in 1970 providing a volunteer Lifeguard service on Seaford beach. It launched the National Lifesaving Academy in January 2013.
Julie Ward, sales and marketing director for McCarthy and Stone, said, “We’re always keen to give back to the communities in which we build in, and the local lifeguards provide such a valuable service to the people of both this town on beyond, that we really felt it our duty to support them.”
