YOUNGSTERS were rewarded for their hard work on Wednesday at a charity’s annual awards ceremony.

Mayor of Islington Cllr Una O’Halloran handed out engraved cups and shields to the high- achieving kids who attend after-school clubs at Prospex youth charity, based in Holloway. The charity offers a variety of classes, alongside running outreach programmes to tackle anti-social behaviour.

Three youngsters were chosen for the Jack Petchey award, which came with a £250 prize.
Louise Fitch, 12, was given the award for always joining in and working hard to get others involved.

Richard “Beef” Frankland, CEO of Prospex, said: “She tries everything even if she doesn’t enjoy it or it’s not her cup of tea. She’s fair but very cheeky and great to be around.”

Louise spent her award money on taking fellow members of the after-school club to Nando’s and a trip to a trampoline park.
