University of Leicester’s Heroes Day!


25Oct2016

We partnered up with The University of Leicester to hold a 'Heroes Day' to celebrate the many unsung heroes who do such tremendous work locally.

Also taking part in the drive were four local colleges...

Beauchamp College in Oadby, Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth College in Leicester, Gateway College in Hamilton, Leicester and last but not least Robert Smyth Academy in Market Harborough Leicestershire...

You can see pictures from these events on separate pages dedicated to each college/academy event!

The University of Leicester had a large marquee set up in the middle of the University campus, there were lots of fun things to do, music entertainment food and drink... oh and we were there signing up hundreds of prospective donors to the register! we'll post pictures from the event soon...

But thats not all! 

We were also looking for real heroes (in addition to all those that signed up of course)

We scoured Leicestershire looking for unsung heroes to receive a University of Leicester, Leicester Hero Award and be treated to a VIP lunch.

A ‘Leicester Hero’ is someone who has enriched the lives of others, has shown dedication and selflessness, has made a special and significant impact on an individual, families, or the community at large and has gone 'above and beyond' to serve and inspire others.

We had a panel of judges who worked hard to whittle nominates down to six  Heroes. The chosen heroes were presented with their awards on event day and treated to a three-course fantastic  lunch alongside other special VIPs. It was a brilliant day. Pictures coming soon...
