'My Experience of Winning a Jack Petchey Award' by Simone

"To start off, winning a Jack Petchey feels amazing and the feeling of being recognised for all of your hard work and your contributions to the community is indescribable. My parents were extemely proud of my achievement by which I gained a loud shout out of 'well Done Simone' from my father in the crowd when collecting my award.  

Overall, the ceremoney was a night to remember - from the performances, to the achievers and the host, it was an evening I will never forget!"

A few words from Alan

"As a winner of the Jack Petchey award, I was fortunate enough to attend the ceremony. It was a great event with a lot of excitement and impressive performances from talented individuals. While a tad nervous, it was a privilege to be publicly acknowledged for my contributions, moreover, I felt delighted to find out I was nominated in the first place for my - what I thought were fully routine - actions."
