Ilfracombe CATS held their FIRST ever CATS Awards Evening on 26th June 2013 at Slade Valley Youth Club.

The sun shone on all those who attended this hugely inspiring event and there was standing room only at the venue as young people, their families and friends, VIP presenters, CATS UK staff, local sports providers and representatives from the local community took their seats.
