About The Scheme
The Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme was formed to recognise "extreme endeavour and to help young people to help themselves". Chelmsford swimming club has been successful in being accepted onto the scheme.
We are now able to give a number of awards to individuals within the club throughout the year. Awards are not necessarily for the fastest or most popular individuals, but are intended to recognise those young people (aged 11-25) who have made a positive contribution to the club, community, school or shown personal traits such as commitment, hard work, and persistence.
To learn more about the scheme, please visit their website at www.jackpetcheyfoundation.org.uk. Each award winner will receive a framed certificate, and be given the opportunity to choose a financial award (currently £200) for the club of one of the items on our 'wish list'.
We are always looking for award nominees. Anyone can nominate someone within the club, so please pick up a form from the notice board, or download it from here and send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
