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 unfortunately we can only do what funding will allow. In addition to the direct financial support we receive we have help with materials and plants from North Devon Council to carry out projects and local suppliers let us have goods at reduced rates.

We have been involved with several fund raising events including a sale of plants grown for us by volunteers & an ‘Open House’ event at the Round House. The Ilfracombe & District Tourism Association, as well as sponsoring us financially, arranges regular winter quiz nights at the George & Dragon which raised over £550 in 2015/16.
