In dark days, this gift translates to a bright ray of hope for many people, and we promise that we will use every penny carefully and for the good of those most in need.

Donation to Rye and District Street Pastors

This transports the team, supplies and refreshments as well as assisting individuals who are in need of our  support and we may deal with 20 to 30 per evening who are predominantly vulnerable youths or adults. Jempson’s have been supporting us for the last 5 years by covering the cost of our Car Insurance and we are grateful to them for their support” Nizam, Coordinator Rye and District Street Pastors and Ascension Trust Representative

“The polytunnel re-positioning and repair, with improved accessibility to our Jabez Gardens, will enable our gardening project to benefit the local community. In partnership with local groups and causes, we are developing our facilities to expand the life skills of individuals through gardening work placements, whilst offering gardening opportunities to those on retreat at our Centre.” John Brown, Crowhurst Christian Healing Centre

Wittersham School Association Donation

The Jempson Foundation are delighted to make a donation to the Wittersham School Association.

“This was a request from the children on the School Council who asked if a bird hide, binoculars and other learning resources could be purchased for the Wildlife Garden here at the School. Lockdown saw many children become interested in birdwatching and we use this space during lunchtimes and Wildlife Club. It is really good to have the support of Jempson’s, it means a lot to the children to know that the wider community are taking an interest in their wellbeing and development – they feel heard and valued” Claire, Headteacher

Donation made to Warming up The Homeless

They will have had their whole life turned upside down so to give them some normality at this time will be so good. Thank you to Jempson’s for their contribution to help make this possible” Trudy, CEO Warming Up The Homeless
