The Bruce Charles Clarke Encouragement Awards have been donated by his daughter Anita Roberts nee Clarke to reward competitors for facing challenges and and ultimately triumphing.

Bruce was a man who life didn’t always treat fairly, but he rose to the challenges before him and succeeded in the face of adversity. Anita donated four rosettes and vouchers for the 2009 MSC, and in 2010 will be donating a Bruce Charles Clarke Memorial Trophy for annual competition.
