Year 9 Student Receives Award for Charity Work
Jack Petchey Award
My experience of receiving the Jack Petchey Award was amazing because I met David Crates. David is an Olympic and Paralympic finalist. I received the Award was because of the work I do with the Waltham Forest Dyslexia Association (WFDA).
David Crates was very inspiring because when he was in Australia he had a car accident and sadly lost an arm. After a year he got back into doing sports such as rugby. He pushed himself and never gave up.
