Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Gaenor Young, who's been a part of the Hip Hop Pop family since her eldest son was a Hip Hop Pop Schools Clubs student nearly 10 years ago, was awarded a Jack Petchey Leader Award in front of her peers and students yesterday (18th April) at the Harlow Playhouse.

Gaenor's application read: "Gaenor is so generous with her time and goes above and beyond to make sure all young people at the dance school feel welcome, comfortable and have the assistance they need. Gaenor also volunteers her time to chaperone the young people at performances and has done for many years now. Gaenor always welcomes our young people with a smile and warmth and takes the time to get to know them and their families. At shows, Gaenor is super organised backstage and is a delight to have to look after the young people.'"

The fantastic news came 2 weeks previous, that Gaenor was successful in achieving the award, and we couldn't be more chuffed for her! As a Leader Award winner, the team at HHP, Gaenor and the young people at HHP are able to apply for a Jack Petchey Grant this year.
