We have been delighted at the coverage our #TogetherWeCare awards have received in the local media.
The Leicester Mercury ran an article listing all of the 223 people and organisations who have stepped up and given back during the Covid-19 lockdown. https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news/leicester-news/listed-fantastic-people-groups-been-4466296
Kieran Breen, CEO of Leicestershire Cares was then on BBC Radio Leicester talking about the scheme and how it demonstrated so clearly the agility and creativity of our community. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08nvh98 go to 2hr 39mins on this link to hear him speaking with Rupal Rajani.
The great thing about these awards are they show just how many people do care and what can be achieved when people are supported and encouraged to get on and help others.Kieran Breen, CEO Leicestershire Cares
We hope that this great community effort is the start of a new way of local government, community and business working together so nobody is left behind.
