Neetu was delighted to win the Together Award at BBC Radio Leicester’s inaugural Make a Difference community Awards. The packed ceremony took place at the Grand Hotel on Saturday 15th October , and was attended by a sea of lovely people who have all done amazing things to make our city and county a better place for all.
The awards were an inspirational afternoon, where people and organisations who have stepped up and supported their communities and neighbours, had their efforts recognised and celebrated.
The ceremony was a reminder of just how much, talent, creativity, and grounded knowledge there is in our communities and neighbourhoodsKieran Breen CEO Leicestershire Cares

I am humbled to have been nominated alongside so many great organisations and in truth everyone here today is a winner, so to actually win is such an honour, but also a reminder of what can be achieved when we work togetherNeetu Squire Head of Community Development
True to form Neetu was back out in Belgrave the following Sunday morning working with the police, community leaders and young people to see how she might support them providing sports provision for young people. The Leicestershire cares team, community partners, young people and volunteers are all really proud of Neetu’s achievements and we know there is much more to come.
