The Jack Petchey Foundation Awards Scheme

The Jack Petchey Foundation was set up to support young people aged 11-25 through programmes in schools and youth organisations. Since its formation over £65 million of funding has been distributed.

NMCC has successfully applied to join the Achievement Award Scheme which aims to celebrate the achievements of young people by rewarding them with a framed certificate, a Young Achiever Badge and £200 to be spent on a project of their choice.

Nominations are open to everyone associated with the club who thinks that a member between the ages of 11 and 25 deserves recognition. That is not to say that performance on the pitch is the prime factor in any nomination. It is also important to reward those who contribute in other ways, so a colt who always attends training but may not be the most competent cricketer, or someone who stays behind to help put away training equipment, are just as likely to receive an award.

A post box is to be provided for general nominations. Nomination forms can be obtained from coaches or by downloading a copy by clicking here. Nomination forms can be left in the post box or can be handed to a coach or emailed to martin.armstrongfox@btinternet.com. Coaches are also involved with the nomination process and all nominations will be considered by a small informal committee.

We have created a 'wish list' which will be given to each winner for them to choose how they would like their award to be spent. A copy of the 'wish list' can be downloaded here.
