A new legacy project to ‘inspire’ hardworking youngsters at Sidmouth College has been launched.
The Lions Club of Sidmouth has begun its annual Sidmouth College Annual Pledge by donating £1,074 to fund 50 pupils to benefit from an adventure and leadership event.
The year nine youngsters have been chosen due to their effort and will visit Exeter’s Haven Banks Education Centre in May.
The club set up the initiative to mark its 40th anniversary with the aim of supporting young people.
Alan Shoesmith, president of the Lions, said: “We believe that this legacy project will prove to be of substantial benefit to college students at an important stage of their education.

The pledge has been launched to coincide with the launch of Lions Clubs International’s 100th anniversary as the cause has challenged its clubs to establish a legacy project.
