The Evening Standard featured a piece about the London Youth Awards 2019, which were held on the 14th of November at City Hall. We were honoured to have our President, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, present the Prince Philip Award on behalf of our Patron, the Duke of Edinburgh, to the Jack Petchey Foundation.
“Charity Wins Award for Youth Work Contribution: The Jack Petchey Foundation was today named the winner of a new award for its contribution to youth work.
