The Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme was formed to recognise “extreme endeavour and to help young people to help themselves”. Maldon Sharks swimming club has been successful in applying to be able to make achievement awards to its club members under this scheme. We are now able to make a number of awards to individuals within the club during the year. Awards are not necessarily for the fastest swimmer or most popular individuals, but are intended to recognise those young people (aged 11-25) who have demonstrated characteristics such as commitment, hard work, persistence or made a positive contribution to the club and/or other people.

Each award winner will receive a framed certificate. The winner will also be given a financial award to be used to fund one or more projects from the current club ‘wish list’.
