Sponsorship & Funding


Ilfracombe in Bloom is financed by discretionary grants and donations together with fundraising activities to raise the monies needed. The floral displays are cost effective as the work is done by unpaid volunteers, the largest expense being the watering of the summer displays.


In addition to a grant from Ilfracombe Town Council donations are made by a number of local companies, clubs, groups and individuals.  We are very grateful to all our sponsors for their continued support, without this help our displays would be depleted as because we can only do what funding will allow. In addition to the direct financial support we  also have help with materials and plants from North Devon Council and several local suppliers let us have goods at reduced rates.


We have been involved with several fund raising events through the year, we’ve had stalls selling plants grown by volunteers as well as tombolas and raffles and the Ilfracombe Plant Sale with workshops as part of the Ilfracombe Art Trail event in May.   


Ilfracombe & District Tourism Association, as well as sponsoring us financially, arrange regular quiz nights at the George & Dragon which raised £669.00 for Ilfracombe in Bloom through the winter of 2016/2017.
