Celebrating the Achievements of our Young People

45 young people from across London District came together at Kensington Town Hall on Saturday 9th March for the 2019 Jack Petchey Achievement Awards.

The young people were presented with awards by the Jack Petchey Foundation, recognising their individual achievements whether it be a personal triumph for someone who has faced a challenge, a young person who has pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone or recognising the outstanding efforts of a team player.  Nominated by their peers the award winners have all got something to be proud of!

All those that were presented with their awards also received a grant of £250 to benefit their group in some way, whether contributing towards the cost of a residential or trip out; or purchasing some equipment.

The awards were presented by London Vice President, Chris Norman and London Trustee, Alan Pannell. During the event the audience including Leaders, Parents/Carers and award winners were entertained by fantastic performances from the London Bugle Band and West London Gym Team.
