Aaron Arthur, known as Elvis from Nunhead, has been given a Jack Petchey Award after raising more than £2,000 to help feed vulnerable residents during the Coronavirus pandemic.
The King from SE15 has been entertaining residents with regular fundraising performances including during the Thursday clap for carers events in lockdown.
Since May he has collected £2,237 from the generous community for the Salvation Army’s weekly meal deliveries for shielding residents.
Aaron was nominated for the special award by fellow Nunhead local Katie Worthington after a call out from the Jack Petchey Foundation for young people who have made a difference to their community, no matter how big or small, during the crisis.
He was presented with his award at the Westminster House Youth Club in Nunhead Grove on Tuesday evening.
Sir Jack Petchey, now 95 years old, set up his foundation to help inspire young people and has, so far, given away 133 million of his self-made fortune so far.
