Students from 19 Bexley secondary schools have celebrated Jack Petchey awards which honoured the achievements of 135 young people.

Winners received medals, framed certificates and cheques worth £200 at the ceremony at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford on Tuesday (June 18).

They included James Haddock, age 13, from Harris Academy Falconwood who won for his constant training as an St John’s Ambulance cadet, rising to Sergeant.

In order to qualify for Sergeant James spent 100 hours of voluntary first aid in London. He gives up an hour every week to teach eight to 10 year olds first aid.
