on the large stone plaque on the gate post of the Bath Arms in Cheddar.
With aims very similar to the Cheddar Youth Trust, The Sarah Comer Educational Charity
featured education and training at its core, the trustees extending the scope to
cover the educational experience of travel and leadership within its brief.
Contrary to the Cheddar Youth Trust which accepted applications from younger people,
the Sarah Comer Educational Charity age range was limited to 16 to 25 years because
the original concept all those years ago was to support young people in apprenticeships.

The trustees of the Cheddar Youth Trust are committed to ensuring that the work of
the Sarah Comer Educational Charity is remembered in perpetuity.
