Our 2021 Award Winners

27 Sep 2021

We were thrilled to be able to hold our annual award ceremony face in face last week at the stunning Winstanley House. The event celebrated the commitment our business members and their employees have given to supporting young people and community groups across the city and county over the last eighteen months and the difference that has made.

Congratulations to all the nominees and winners, you are all amazing!

We are immensely grateful and proud of the businesses we work with. The last eighteen months has been tough for everyone, and our businesses continued to step up and offer skills, knowledge and resources to young people and community groups, turning despair into hope.

Our vision is for an inclusive and safe Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland where nobody is left behind, and all children and young people are supported to reach their full potential. Our wonderful business members are helping us to achieve this through their ongoing commitment, passion and enthusiasm for volunteering and support of our work.

We are grateful for their support and very much enjoyed celebrating with them

The awards event was great, it was so inspiring and motivational hearing the young people talk about how the projects have supported them and we were, of course, really delighted to have won the awards we took home. It’s such a lovely thing to be able to share with all our volunteers and something I am sure the Society is very proud of, I know I am.
