Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award Winner
23rd June 2014
We are pleased to announce that one of the Scouts from 1st Foots Cray Scout Group has recently won a Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award. Joshua Keily was presented with the award by John Baxter, the Bexley District Chairman.
Joshua completed the Chief Scout Gold Award and, as a patrol leader, he regularly passed on the skills he has learnt to other members of his patrol. He recently led a patrol to organise their own camp and led them successfully at the event. He has also assisted in running a camp for the Cub section. He showed great leadership skills by captaining the Troop team at the 5-a-side competition, ensure that the team maintained their confidence and continued to work as a team, despite losing most of their games.
As part of the Award a cheque for £200.00 was presented to Joshua that has to be spent on an activity, equipment or event that the winner of the Award decides on. Joshua has decided to put the money towards the cost of the 1st Foots Cray Scout Group attending WINGS – this year's Summer Camp.
The Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award Scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.
