Kingston & Poly join the Jack Petchey Award Scheme
Kingston & Poly’s application to join the Jack Petchey Foundation’s Achievement Award Scheme has been approved by the Foundation’ Trustees. Starting in June, the Club will be making eight awards per year to young members.
The Jack Petchey Foundation is a London-based charitable foundation that aims to support young people. Its main instrument is the Achievement Award Scheme for organisations working with young people of 11-25 years, including schools and sports clubs. Awards are made to young people for special achievements or contributions to the youth organisation. For the Club, the running of the Award Scheme will be coordinated by Frank Schubert.
Awards will be presented at a Club training night Tuesday or Thursday. The award winner receives a certificate, a medal, and a cheque of £300 to be spent on a Club project selected by the recipient from a Club wish list. Any suggestions for the wish list (equipment, social events, training opportunites…) are welcome, and should be forwarded to Frank.
We are one of the biggest and friendliest athletics clubs in London and compete across a huge array of leagues, events and championships and have athletes of literally all standards and ages and across all events.
Whether you are an 8 year old novice, a senior international or a “more mature” athlete looking to get back into the sport – we can help you achieve your goals.
We cater for runners, jumpers, throwers and multi-eventers on the track, in the field, on the roads or over the country and are based at Kingsmeadow in Kingston-upon-Thames (KT1 3PB). We'll be very happy to help you with your sport – so please just get in touch and we'll do all we can to assist.
