Every single penny of the money raised throughout the week is put towards the funding of series of bursaries which are awarded annually. The four bursaries, one each for Medical, Music & Performing Arts, Carpentry and Agriculture, are awarded by a small panel of Society members annually in late summer and only students over 16 years of age going entering into Further Education and residing in the YO25 area are eligible to apply ensuring that the money raised by local people goes on to help local young people.
The funds also go towards presents for the children attending Riding for the Disabled and provides funding for two Driffield School students to attend the RYLA Leadership program.
