The George in the Community

Taking responsibility within the local community is an important commitment for The George in Rye.

In 2013 a scheme was introduced whereby a £1 discretionary donation is added to every guest's bill. Guests are asked on checkout to choose between one of two charities they would like to support, and we then match every £1 donated by our guests. This month our chosen charities are the Sara Lee Trust and the Now I Know Appeal (NSPCC). If you are a charity and would like to be considered for our fundraising scheme please contact us.
  • The Rye & District Day Centre is the latest beneficiary of The George's scheme to support local charities.  The Centre provides help and social interaction to the elderly people of Rye and the surrounding villages.  Click here to read more.

  • A total of £1,316 was raised for the Kent Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in September 2013.  The Air Ambulance plays a vital role in the Rye area in getting casualties to hospital quickly, responding to everything from car to horse riding accidents.  Click here for more information.
