Raising the roof: RSK sponsors 1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout group

June 08, 2021

RSK is delighted to sponsor the 1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout group, based in Nottinghamshire, UK. The environmental, engineering and technical services business has donated £500 to the scout group, taking it up to its fundraising target of £1800, which will enable the installation of a new scout-hut roof.

 Dr Mercedes Franey-Gardiner, whose daughter has been attending the organisation’s cub group virtually throughout lockdown, organised the sponsorship with the kind support of RSK Group Chief Executive Officer Alan Ryder and Director Garry Charnock.

 “The coronavirus pandemic has been challenging for all children, who have had intermittent spells at school and minimal interaction with their friends,” said Mercedes. “For my daughter, who has additional needs, physical and mental engagement are particularly vital for her well-being and these have been affected by the pandemic. The 1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout group has been invaluable for our family throughout lockdown, enabling my daughter to develop a fresh sense of engagement and purpose through its virtual meetings. It’s been a very positive change for her.”

 The scouts have now returned to outdoor meetings and are hopeful that they can return to indoor meetings later in the year. With the support of RSK and other donors, the group members are confident that the new roof will be ready for their return.

“It is our pleasure to be able to support the scout group that has been essential to Mercedes’ family during this difficult period,” said Alan. “Well-being is always a priority within RSK, not just that of our employees but also of their relatives. We wish the group all the best as it returns to face-to-face meetings.”

 “We are very grateful for this financial support,” comments Richard Smith, 1st Carlton-in-Lindrick Scout Leader. “It is very much appreciated by all members of the group. Without the generous support of outside organisations we would not be able to offer the full programme of scouting activities. Every year it costs between £10,000 and £15,000 to run the group. Any major capital expenditure such as the new roof is over and above this.

 “Our current membership is about 80 young people aged 6 to 18 and we have about 20 adult volunteers. Having a sound, well-maintained headquarters building will ensure that we are able to provide first-class facilities for many years to come.”
