We help support Ilfracombe Academy, Ilfracombe Interact and local Junior Schools at Ilfracombe, West Down, Berrynarbour and Combe Martin with various competitions to encourage and support youngsters to get involved with various projects. 

Young Photographer is a Nationwide Competition and one of our studends, Mollie Sprigg was awarded 3rd prize for the whole of the South West in July 2018 plus at the recent SW Conference was selected as second place in delegates choice. 

We have donated photographic equipment to ilfracombe Academy and both Ilfracombe and Combe Martin Junior Schools and they have started Photographic Clubs and we were delighted at the number of entrants we received. 

Combe Martin have been heavily involved with Young Writer of the Year and one of their pupils came third in the whole District Competition in 2018. 

We also have Young Chef of the Year, Young Musician of the Year and Young Writer of the Year competitions, all of which are to a very high standard and it is great to see the enthusiasm of all the students that take part. 

We also recommend students for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA).  Last year's participipants  gave us a presentation and it was rewarding to see how their confidence had grown as a result of their time at RYLA.
