Jack Petchey Award Success

Date: 7th Dec 2019 Author: Nikki Benge

Well done to Alex and Oliver who were presented with Jack Petchey Achievement Awards recently.

The award scheme recognises outstanding young people aged 11-25 who have gone above and beyond to achieve.

Over 100 Scouts and Explorers from Greater London South West Scout County attended a ceremony in Chessington and were presented with their awards by the Mayor or Deputy Mayor of their respective District.

Each award winner received a certificate, pin badge and book. They will also choose how to spend a £250 grant to benefit 2nd Whitton Scout Group.

I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
