Jack Petchey Award Scheme
Since 2006 we have been working with the Jack Petchey Foundation, and have been running a Jack Petchey Award Scheme. Jack Petchey was awarded an OBE in 2004 in recognition of his contribution to young people. On a monthly basis we nominate a member of our Youth Club who we feels deserves recognition for putting effort in and for always trying their best. The Jack Petchey Foundation then provides us a grant for the award winner to choose something they would like to spend the grant on. The Jack Petchy Award Scheme has enabled Isleworth Explorers to purchase PCs, Nintendo Wii, PS3, football training equipment, X box 360, karaoke equipment, Flat screen TV, and Sky subscription.
The Jack Petchey Foundation, established in 1999, gives grants to programmes and projects that benefit young people aged 11 - 25. The Foundation is eager to help young people take advantage of opportunities and play a full part in society
