Each year the club sponsors 2 students from Uppingham Community College to attend the Rotary YRYLA course at the White House Centre, Buxton. The course is designed for 14 year-old students drawn for across District 1070. It is valuable because at this age many of the youngsters are experiencing their first trip away from the influence of parents and school.
In 2022 we again sponsored 2 students from UCC chosen from 6 applicants during the preceding months.
The students arrived at the White House on the Friday evening to find Buxton covered in snow and storm force winds prevailing as one of the nnamed winter storms blew through. Nevertheless, activities both indoor and outdoor started as planned in the usual highly competitive manner.
On 25 April one of the studnets attended a club evening and gave a really excellent presentation to club members describing the course, activities and what she had gained from it - if the presentation was true witness she had certainly gained in self-confidence.
