From the breadth of Great Britain, SOHK patrons and supporters gathered to celebrate the gifted, exceptional and amazing SOHK participants of the year for their achievements, personal growth, and inspiring journies.

With clubs in England, Scotland and Wales, SOHK works with both adults and young people who are making headway with their lives and it is with pride SOHK can say that 50% of our courses involve women. 

The selection of this year's winners was no easy task as so many people do so well ... but some people are exceptional.

Ken Cowen CEO stated:

It is often a sad part of my position to speak about the sad stories of School of Hard Knocks, but tonight there are no sad stories.
I am very proud of colleagues at the front line who work so hard day in day out and are so passionate about what this charity is all about, but I am equally proud of, if not more proud of, the people being recognised here tonight who have done amazing things with their lives in SOHK.
