Selected Enfield Jack Petchey award winners given double accolade at awards evening
Winners of a London youth award were given a second cause for celebration at an awards evening.
Eight talented young people from the borough were among 85 people from 16 areas across London and Essex to be presented with Jack Petchey Achievement Awards.
Nominated by peers, the medallions were given to the stars on top of their initial prize of a certificate and a cheque for £200.
In addition to the young achievers, some adults were given leaders awards.
Workers at the Youth Zone in Fore Street, Edmonton were amongst the winners.
