Community Awards recognise amazing charities and hand out £5,000

The Leicestershire Community Champions Awards returned on Thursday 18th November at the Leicestershire County Cricket Ground, with The Zinthiya Trust taking the flagship award of Charity of the Year.

The event was set up by the Furnley House Foundation to celebrate the amazing people and organisations who have gone above and beyond to help their local communities.

The Furnley House Foundation is the brainchild of Furnley House, an independent financial and mortgage adviser, created to improve the lives of those less fortunate. 

For the awards, the Foundation asked people to nominate their local heroes over ten categories including registered charities, community organisations, local businesses, as well as individuals.

Hosted by Lewis Moses, the awards evening was attended by 150 people. Over £2500 was raised on the night, which will be split equally between the five Charity of the Year finalists.

The Zinthiya Trust were awarded the title of Charity of the Year, which was sponsored by Furnley House, winning a £5000 grant as well as a share of the proceeds from the next Furnley House Foundation Summer Ball.

Stefan Fura, co-founder of Furnley House and Trustee of the Furnley House Foundation said

"We are delighted that we’re able to raise awareness and support so many local causes as well as celebrating the fantastic individuals and organisation who have really made a difference. Congratulations to all the very deserving finalists and winners.

Thank you to all our judges and sponsors for their generous support of the Awards and the Furnley House Foundation."

Simon Winfield, Chair of the Furnley House Foundation said

"It is truly inspiring to see the great work undertaken in our local community by so many individuals and organisations. The awards go from strength to strength and we look forward to growing them into an even larger event to recognise the Leicester & Leicestershire community in 2022.”
