Jack Petchey SE Regional Awards Event

Jack Petchey SE London Regional Awards Event
A fantastic awards presentation for the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme was held on the evening of Monday 8th June 2019, at The Churchill Theatre in Bromley.
The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to inspire and motivate young people across London and Essex by providing exciting projects and programmes for them to get involved in.
“The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best. Each year, we recognise 14,000 Achievement Award winners and invest £3.5m through the Achievement Awards scheme.” Sir Jack Petchey CBE
Claire Pester, Club Secretary and Jack Petchey Coordinator for the Club was delighted with the turnout for the evening – “It was great to see so many young achievers; not just from the Kent Exiles but from lots of youth clubs, teams and organisations across the borough. The awards reflect on some outstanding achievements of today’s young people. I was delighted to be in attendance, to see all of them receiving their award for their hard work and positive impact in their community. I am so proud of each and every one of our award winners; Well done all!”
Achievement Award Winners were called to the stage one by one and testimonies were read out, reflecting their great achievements. They then posed for photographs with Donna Fraser, UK Athletics Vice President.
