We would like to congratulate our first ever Jack Petchey Achievement Award winner, Lucy Greed!

Lucy was nominated by members of the cast of Cinderella to receive the award after she rose to the challenge of playing the title role in the show.

Youth members explained that Lucy had overcome big challenges during rehearsals for the show and had stepped out of her comfort zone. At the same time, Lucy continued to act as a role model and supported younger members of the cast.

Some of the comments submitted by members of the cast are below:

[I nominate Lucy] “Because she has shown such progress from the beginning of this show and to see her overcome her fear of singing in public needs great recognition. I’m so proud of her.”

“I would like to nominate Lucy mostly because of what she has become over the past few weeks. She’s put so much effort into being Cinderella this term that I think she deserves it. I also nominate her for how much she cares for everyone at Kyds as she’s certainly made me feel welcome!

As part of her Jack Petchey Achievement Award, Lucy was asked to decide how to spend a £200 grant from the Jack Petchey Foundation. Following Lucy’s decision, members will be going bowling in January next year! 

Well done Lucy on your fantastic achievement!
