Shenfield Cricket Club was nominated on to the Jack Petchey Award scheme as of Autumn 2004. For those of you who are unaware of the scheme, here are a few details.
The Jack Petchey Award scheme is open to organisations that work with 11-25 year olds in East London and West Essex. Awards are £250 each and are to be spent on new equipment or a club project of the recipient's choice (they cannot be used towards normal club maintenance, etc.) SCC is on the Jack Petchey Bronze Award Scheme which currently offers 3 awards each year, with 2 nominations for the Spring and Summer seasons, and 1 award for the Autumn season.
The winners are chosen by those associated with the club, including colts' parents and the young people. Nomination forms are available in the clubhouse and, when completed, should be posted in the nomination box or you can also download the form from the above link. Winners are displayed on a colourful wall chart within the clubhouse and to help recipients decide how best to spend their award money, there is a Wish List on the club notice board on which you may add your own suggestions.
Adults (leaders/volunteers) can also be recognised and appreciated through the parallel Leader Award scheme. Each year a youth organisation can nominate an adult leader for an award and then apply for a Small Grant of up to £750.
We are also extremely grateful to the Jack Petchey Foundation for a grant of £5,211 towards our new scorebox with electronic scoreboard. The old scorebox was destroyed in a gale.
