Jack Petchey Leader Award

We have been lucky enough to be accepted in to the Jack Petchey Leader Award Scheme; as a result each year we have an opportunity to recognise and award one of our adult volunteers.

What is the Jack Petchey Leader Award Scheme?


Linked to the Achievement Award Scheme for young people, the Leader Award enables Bigfoot Youth’s members to honour the dedication and commitment of one of its adult volunteers - particularly those who go the extra mile to support the club.

The Jack Petchey Foundation realise that none of the great sessions and events that our young riders are able to participate in would not be possible without the support of their adult volunteers. This is a chance for our young riders to recognise the adult volunteers, the ones that inspire and support them – and to say thank you.

How the scheme works


Once a year our young riders select one of the club's adult volunteers to receive the Leader Award. This will be done by each of our young riders getting one vote, and the adult volunteer with the most votes gets the award! Think carefully about who deserves it and why. Our young riders in the Youth Forum will lead on this process (supported by an adult in the club who is our 'Jack Petchey Award co-ordinator')

The adult volunteer must:

•    Have demonstrated, in an outstanding way, an ability to encourage and motivate our young riders
•    Be regularly working with our young riders
•    Be over 21 years old
•    Have been involved in our club for at least 1 year
•    Have not won the Leader Award previously (our previous winner being Adam Shepherd).

We will then congratulate the winner for their achievement at one of our club sessions, they get:

•    A framed certificate and medallion
•    They may additionally be awarded a £750 grant by the Jack Petchey Foundation to be spent on something of their choice that will benefit Bigfoot Youth CC
•    Award winners are further recognised by attending one of the Jack Petchey celebration events.

March 2016 Winner

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 winner of the Jack Petchey Leader Award is Adam Shepherd.


May 2017 Winner


The May 2017 winner of the Jack Petchey Leader Award is Carol Rushmere.
 
Carol is the person who sorts all our first aid supplies and arranges first aid training. She has also been a fantastic help supporting our more ambitious long rides as part of the support team – support vehicle, food and drink provision and looking after us all at overnight accommodation.

October 2017 Winner


The October 2017 winner of the Jack Petchey Leader Award is Stephen Peate.
 
Stephen has been one of the leading club coaches for several years, both at Hayes and now at Youth. He's established consistent coaching session plans for the club and runs loads of rides for our most able cyclists. He's on our Committee, on the Bigfoot CC main committee as Youth liaison person. He organises and helps run race events (including the Badlands CX race), designs and produces lots of publicity material and has arranged for our more able cyclists to ride with the top levels of the adult club. He also wears good socks, apparently.

September 2018 Winner


The September 2018 winner of the Jack Petchey Leader Award is Spencer Harradine.
 
As one of the founders of Bigfoot Go-Ride, and chairman for the first 8 years, Spencer has been an integral part of the club from the very beginning. The Youth riders who voted for him described him as friendly, a good leader, an inspiration, entertaining, encouraging and full of advice.
