Bandvulc were extremely proud to be sponsors at the The Devon Youth Games this weekend. The Games give children the chance to experience a day of excitement which introduces them to a sport or activity at a level under County standard and involves a number of targeted groups that do not usually get the opportunity to take part in events similar to this.
Year upon year the games have made an impression on us all, whether you are a volunteer, a parent, a participant or an official, the excitement and pride that representing your District can bring is extraordinary and is often one of the first large sporting events that a child takes part in, learning values such as fair play, friendship, teamwork, discipline and respect.
Having avoided cuts for a number of years, it was announced in 2014 that lottery funding would be stopped, with many believing the 2014 Devon Youth Games to be the last. However, despite many setbacks the 2015 Devon Youth Games were a fantastic success and now the 2016 Games have surpassed all expectations.
We look forward to seeing the Devon Youth Games develop even further over the coming years and well done to everyone involved.
