Many congratulations to Naomi Depeza, who has been awarded a Jack Petchey Leader Award. This is a well-deserved award, and recognises the unfailing energy and support Naomi puts into developing the Club. The Petchey Foundation was particularly impressed by the ways in which Naomi brings new swimmers into the Club, and how she works hard to make everyone feel welcome. This is what one of her swimmers had to say in support of the award submission:
"Naomi is really understanding, and she knows what it feels like to be a child. And she makes it fun." (Swimmer, aged 10)
Many congratulations from everyone at HAC on this very well deserved Award!
