MALS SEEK FORMER PRODIGIES
The Mal de Mers are looking for information on past recipients of their Merit Trophy.
The mainland-based sports club, which arrives on Scilly for its latest visit on Wednesday, has presented an award to a Five Islands School student every year since 1956.
The Merit Trophy is given to the 'boy or girl who, over his or her school career, has contributed something of merit, by his or her example and personal effort made to help others'.
Club member Roy Bound is attempting to create a 'Where are they now?' record for all previous winners of the trophy, which is presented along with a cheque at the annual Guest Night Dinner.
The Mals write in their brochure: "This award is the premier contact with the school and an important link between the islanders and the Club since many earlier holders of the trophy will now be meeting us in our various sports or in the shops/hotels on the islands...
"It would be great to learn how their lives have progressed and to possibly run a feature in next year's brochure."
Anyone with information about previous winners is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last year's Merit Trophy was won by Cameron Hicks.
