We're really lucky to live and work in West Sussex. The South Coast is rich with a vibrant mix of culture and history; the feeling that what we are fortunate enough to have now was founded on the strength of the communities that were here before us. And it's the fact that our communities, to this day, continue to work together to keep our towns and villages working together that brings in more and more tourists and residents year on year.
As a local business with offices spanning across the South Coast of West Sussex, we feel that it's really important to be involved in the nourishment and growth of our local communities and be a known presence amongst other local businesses and charities.
This year we are fortunate enough to be partnering with these amazing charities:
Jacobs Steel is thrilled to be sponsoring Worthing High School's exciting Greenpower racing project in 2022. You can read all about our partnership here.
FRIENDS of Vale School have been busy fundraising to re-nature an area of the school grounds.
The charity has a number of events planned throughout the school year, particularly over the festive period, with Jacobs Steel as the official sponsor.
We have recently challenged pupils to decorate Christmas tree ornaments - children were given two weeks to decorate the ornaments, before Friends of Vale School presented over 100 entries to staff from Jacobs Steel for judging.
Our director, Matt Jacobs, said:
"We were so impressed with the Christmas decorations - there was so much attention to detail, and some fantastic original designs."
"We are so happy to support the fantastic work the school is doing to enhance the environment"
A winning tree ornament was selected from each year group, plus two highly recommended decorations. All the winners recieved a chocolate selection box.
All the winning decorations, plus every competition entry will be displayed on the Jacobs Steel community Christmas tree, outside the Jacobs Steel office in Findon in December.
Jacqui Jenkins, the chairperson of Friends of Vale School, said:
"The support of Jacobs Steel as the official sponsor of our community based Christmas events in invaluable. Their generosity will enable us to operate our popular festive trailer on Monday 6 December and on Thursday 16th Decemeber we are holding a Carols by Torchlight event in the grounds of Vale school."
Our Findon office has gone all festive with the arrival of the Jacobs Steel community Christmas tree! 🎄
We supplied the 16ft tree for all the Findon Valley community to enjoy this Christmas.
It is decorated with beautiful handmade ornaments that pupils from Vale school created.
It was so nice to see pupils visit the tree after school to see if they could spot their ornament!
Thanks to our fantastic Findon staff for getting the tree decorated today and to TipTop fencing and garden services for supplying the fence - find them here.
This Worthing Herald article sheds light on the event.
- Merry Christmas!

And, we are sponsoring some notelets which have been designed by talented artists at Guild Care's Birkdale and Fitzalan centres.
