Putting the boot into charity


Jempson’s Peasmarsh superstore has played host to a number of Bank Holiday Charity Boot Fairs, with this year’s events once again proving very popular, which in turn helped to raise a significant amount of money for local good causes, writes Dominic Plomer-Roberts. This year’s car boot sales attracted hundreds of sellers and enthusiastic bargain hunters with over £1,800 being raised for charity and the money from the sales of pitches and collections on the days were donated to Rye’s Bonfire Society, Rye & District Community Transport, Rye Day Centre and the Rother Responders.

Managing Director Stephen Jempson said: “Our annual Boot Fairs are a well established event in the Jempson’s calendar. We take great pleasure in offering our services for the benefit of local good causes and the community overall. These events are well organised and we hope that they will be even bigger and better when they return in 2016. We look forward to welcoming even more traders and bargain hunters next year”. Pictured are (left to right) Pat Hughes (Rye & District Community Transport), Nick Double (Jempson’s “Greeter), Dave Pellen (Rye Day Centre) and Carl Fraser (Rother Responders).
