Sir Roger Manwood's School in Sandwich has received a significant donation from Vigilant Global as part of the Richborough Mast benefits programme for the local communities in the Richborough, Ash and Sandwich area.
The school is receiving funding contributing towards a new sound system for the School Hall, which is the focal point for a range of academic and extra-curricular activities.
"The Hall plays an important role in our curricular and extra-curricular activities, as it's the main space in which we can bring people together, so this funding from Vigilant Global will make a real difference to staff, students, parents and visitors." Thomas Molloy, School Business Manager at Sir Roger Manwood's School.
This latest funding follows a similar contribution for a communications system upgrade at Sandwich Technology School earlier in the year, and is part of the first phase of our plans for ongoing community engagement.
"I warmly welcome Vigilant Global's generous donation to Sir Roger Manwood's School, as part of their stated commitment to contributing to the local community." Craig Mackinlay, Member of Parliament for South Thanet
The provision of funding towards the new sound system for Sir Roger Manwood's School and the communications system upgrade at Sandwich Technology School have been provided regardless of the final decision by Dover District Council on the proposed Richborough Mast.
"We are delighted to be able to extend our support to Sir Roger Manwood's School, having already worked with Sandwich Technology School. We're looking forward to building a long term relationship with these schools, and with other schools and community groups in the local area." Eric Bellerive, Vigilant Global
We continue to work with a wide range of local community groups to explore ways in which the proposed mast can make a positive contribution to their important work, and will be making further announcements soon.Read Latest Updates
