Proud families and teachers packed out an awards ceremony to cheer on 150 young people nominated for charity prizes.

Bromley’s Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Awards evening was held at The Broadway Theatre, Catford, Lewisham, recognising children, teenagers and adults who have worked to make a difference in their community, with no achievement too big or small.

Award winners aged between 11 and 25 received medallions, framed certificates and a cheque for £250 each, having been nominated by their peers and leaders.

Fifteen adults were handed Leader Awards for their dedication to motivating young people, taking away their own medallions and certificates.

Youth organisations and schools in Bromley have received £1,297,200 from the Jack Petchey Foundation since funding began in 2006.

Mayor of Bromley Councillor Kathy Bance said: “Thank you to the Jack Petchey Foundation for celebrating and highlighting the many successes and achievements of young people. As the Mayor of Bromley, I am honoured to celebrate this, presenting young people and outstanding leaders from schools and youth organisations that do so much in our borough and beyond!”
