June 14, 2015 in News by Old Oak Centre

Old Oak Children’s & Community Centre celebrated its first ever Awards Ceremony.  The aim of the event was to recognise the achievements and positive outcomes of the centre service users.  This included the stay and play, maternity champions, community champions, adults IT, skills for life English group, sewing group, Friendship group and after school.

Jennifer Murphy Co-ordinator of the event said many people that had attended centre sessions benefited but there are certain individuals that have particularly achieved very well.  This is about the community coming together and looking at the work of the centre, to some of which is a life line.  It is also to recognise and celebrate the work of some outstanding individuals.  We hope to hold this event annually and have new nominees each time.

Wesley Harcourt, Hammersmith & Fulham Councillor marked the ceremony with an opening speech.

“I think thought it was very important to be there to recognise the work that Old Oak had done via all the classes and activities and also to mark the contribution of people from the estate, the time and work they put into achieving. – Wesley Harcourt.


It was a great day.  I really didn’t expect it.  I am really proud of myself said, nominee, Fatima Syed.


I have been doing IT for a long time.  Getting an award is really fantastic.  I am really pleased.  Marita Braithwaite, nominee for an IT award


I feel great, its something you can remember and keep.  Brenda Williams, award for friendship club.
