£500 Donation to Rye Scouts

The Jempson Foundation has contributed £500 to Rye Scouts new building project.

The groups new building will replace the current Scout hut & will be constructed on land adjacent to the leisure centre, the first phase is due to be completed by February 2012.

Stephen Jempson said ‘The Scout Association’s aims are to promote the development of young people within a safe environment. Their current premises are no longer suitable for this purpose as it is too small, old & in a poor state, with no outdoor area’. He continued ‘It is because of this that it gives us tremendous pleasure to make this donation to the 1st Rye Scouts’.

William Perfitt Group Scout Leader said ‘On behalf of 1st Rye Scout Group I would like to thank Jempson’s for this grant, it is very warmly received & will make a lot of difference to our building work’.
