Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Return of Leicestershire Community Awards

Return of Leicestershire Community Awards

Nominations are now open for the Leicestershire Community Champions Awards 2022.

Launched by the Furnley House Foundation in 2020, the awards celebrate the endeavours of Leicestershire individuals and organisations who continually go above and beyond to help and improve the lives of those in need. They specifically recognise those unsung heroes, whose work and dedication make a massive difference to the local area but may otherwise go unnoticed.

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

Nominations will remain open until Friday 30th September. The categories are as follows:

  • Charity of the Year
  • Charity Employee of the Year
  • Young Fundraiser of the Year
  • Fundraiser of the Year
  • Environmental Project of the Year
  • Community Spirit Business Champion
  • Community Spirit Individual Champion
  • Community Organisation of the Year
  • Tracey Miller Achievement Award

Winners will be announced on the evening on Thursday 17th November at Leicestershire County Cricket Club.

Last year, the winner of the headline Charity of the Year category was awarded to The Zinthiya Trust at an evening attended by over 140 people.

Simon Winfield, Managing Director of Red Monkey Play and Chairman of the Furnley House Foundation said

‘We are delighted to be holding the Awards for the 3rd year to recognise the great work undertaken by charities and individuals across Leicestershire.

‘Each year we see an increasing number of fantastic nominations and support from across the community and businesses which have enabled the Awards to become highly prized and valued by the nominees.

‘Please consider who you can nominate to be a community champion and nominate them, it makes such a difference.’
