My Jack Petchey medal

Finally, yesterday, after a year of waiting, we went to celebrate the Jack Petchey award by collecting a wonderfully made medal and joined in a nicely made evening celebration with pics of all the winners and their groups. I won for the Girl Guides in my area.


I missed the evening swim training but wanted to join in to celebrate the wonderful scheme that Jack Petchey provides for community and sports groups by awarding funding and celebrating dedication and achievement.

This program radiates a lot of positivity and inspiration to all.

Girl Guiding is my long-lasting hobby, I went to Rainbows, then Brownies and now Guides.

Jack Petchey award winner

Just received this unusual letter, addressed to Madison and upon opening it, was very surprised to see that Madison has won the November 2016 Jack Petchey award for Girl Guiding London North East County.

Madison was chosen as

  • being kind
  • funny and caring
  • getting on with everyone
  • always having a smile on her face and
  • positive attitude.

And also Madison sets a fantastic example to all the guides. Well done!!

Maybe this is a good place to mention that Madison was also awarded the pupil of the year 7 group in Bishop Challoner School for last year.
