Jack Petchey Awards

Jack Petchey Achievement Awards

Writtle Cricket Club was nominated on to the Jack Petchey Award scheme in 2008 

For those of you who are unaware of the scheme, here are a few details.

The Jack Petchey Award scheme is open to organisations that work with 11-25 year olds in East London and Essex.

We are part of the bronze scheme that enables us to have three Young People’s Achievement Awards to allocate each year – Awards totalling £600 per annum.

The winners are chosen by those associated with the club, including colts' parents and the young people. Nomination forms are available in the clubhouse and, when completed, should be posted in the nomination box.  Winners are displayed on a colourful wall chart within the clubhouse.

Adults (leaders/volunteers) can also be recognised and appreciated through the parallel Leader Award scheme.  Each year a youth organisation can nominate an adult leader for an award.

To help recipients decide how best to spend their award money, there is a Wish List on the club notice board on which you may add your own suggestions.

Three benefits to participants:

  • The award scheme enables youth organisations to recognise the effort, endeavour and achievement of young people in a practical and positive way.
  • The scheme provides much-needed funds to enhance the opportunities and facilities for the young members of the club.
  • The club can nominate an adult who has supported young people in an exceptional way.
