Young People Award

Young People Award

Osmani Trust is very grateful for the support it receives through the Gold level of the Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award scheme.Every year 9 young members are chosen for achieving something special. Sometimes this is for playing well but often it is for something like helping someone else, overcoming an obstacle or trying their best and making progress.

The winners are awarded their certificates and medallions and are able to choose what to spend their award on and make a difference for other young people.

About Jack Petchey

Jack Petchey is one of the UK’s most successful businessmen. Born in East London in July 1925, Jack came from a working class background with very few advantages. From an early age he showed the entrepreneurial skills that have aided his success.

In 1999, he set up the Jack Petchey Foundation as he wanted to give opportunities to young people in London. Over the last ten years he has donated over £65million to schools, clubs and projects which benefit young people in London. In 2004 Jack was awarded an OBE at Buckingham Palace, by Her Majesty The Queen, and in 2011 was awarded a CBE in further recognition of his services to young people.
