P1000148  Sidmouth Lions Club Legacy Pledge 2019

In 2016 to mark their 40th Anniversary, the Sidmouth Lions Club launched a Sidmouth College Annual Pledge to donate around £1000 each year towards activities to improve the personal development of students.
For the past 2 years, the College has used the pledge to reward 50 students in Year 9, who achieved the highest number of praise points, with a trip to Haven Banks in Exeter. As part of the day, youngsters learn about team building and leaderships skills through a series of activities including archery and raft building. They then competed in dragon boat races down the River Exe, to end the day.
This year the College was delighted to receive this kind donation of £1228 from the Lions Club and plans to reward the current year 9s with a similar reward trip in the Summer Term. Vice Principal Jim Ingham-Hill said: “As a college, we are delighted and honoured to have had the chance to work alongside the Lions Club for a third year in a row as part of the Legacy project. We hope this partnership will continue and ensure that hundreds of Sidmouth College students are given the opportunity to take part in an exciting enrichment opportunity.”
Alex Blyth, Sidmouth Lions Club President said: “Since its inception Sidmouth Lions Club has favoured supporting worthwhile youth projects. This Legacy project has clearly demonstrated how young people can be incentivised and benefit from the project.”  College Principal Sarah Parsons said: “It is such a fantastic community link that the College have with the Lions Club, I would like to thank them for their continued support.”
