On 15 January 2020, our award winners from City and Islington College attended the annual Jack Petchey Foundation Presentation Evening.
The winners’ nominations were read out in front of a large audience at Islington Assembly Hall as they received their medallions and shook hands with Mayor of Islington, Rakhia Ismail. It was an exciting evening that allowed both students and staff to be recognised within the local community.
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.” They “also recognise the outstanding achievements of today’s young people by awarding them for their hard work and positive impact in their community.”
Award winner Harry O’Connell told us: “I was ecstatic to win the Jack Petchey award. To see that my work is valued and appreciated with a Jack Petchey award is very uplifting and inspiring and I’ll continue to keep at it.”
Harry’s award followed his work on regular Open Mic events at the Sixth Form, promoting a number of good causes.
