Hundreds of pupils, teachers, and their families were welcomed to the Queen’s Theatre last night for the first of this year’s Jack Petchey Foundation awards.

From raising money for charity, to helping fellow pupils at school with their work, children from across the borough gathered at the Hornchurch community venue to receive their special Jack Petchey medallion.

The evening also included performances from Drapers Academy Choir, St Edwards Dancers, solo performances from Hall Mead singers Niamh O’Shea and Alex Dubar and finished off with a rendition of Eva Cassidy’s Songbird by the FBA Choir.

Cllr Philippa Crowder, mayor of Havering, said: “It was another wonderful evening.

“These events are always the highlight of my mayoral year and the level of the young people’s achievements and the kind generosity of the Jack Petchey Foundation really amazes me.”
