Jack Petchey Awards

I was pleased to present awards to scores of our young people on Thursday evening,  at the Palace Theatre. This was the Jack Petchey awards, for youngsters 11-25 who are giving something back to their community.

To listen to some of the citations made me really proud of how many young people we have in Southend who really do make an effort to contribute back to society, be it with peer support,  helping out in old people’s homes,  organising events etc etc.

The standard of entertainment put on was good too, by different groups of school children. A couple of pictures in this post.
