The Roy Clarke Award Scheme

Roy Clarke was our Chair of Trustees from when we began in 1997 until his death in 2020.  We have developed this Award scheme in his memory.

The Roy Clarke Award Scheme - Community

The Community section of the Roy Clarke Award Scheme  is now running.   To achieve the Community Badge members will spend a minimum of 6 months completing 100 hours of activity that benefits the community in some way.  Roy Clarke first got involved in the group that was later to become Colchester Gateway when he was completing the community section of his Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.  We are therefore delighted that this is the first section of the Roy Clarke Award Scheme to become available to members.  

The Roy Clarke Award Scheme - Skills

The Skills section of the Roy Clarke Award Scheme is now available.  Members must spend at least three months learning or developing two skills.  They don't have to be done at the same time, and members will receive a Certificate for each skill.  Those who complete two skills will then receive a the Skills Badge.
