Finalists announced for the Leicestershire Community Champions Awards

The hard work of several Leicestershire individuals and organisations has been recognised as they’ve been selected as finalists in the Furnley House Foundation Leicestershire Community Champions Awards.  

Now in their third year, the awards recognise those whose work and dedication make a massive difference to the local area but may otherwise go unnoticed. The winner of the headline Charity of the Year category will receive a £5000 grant as well as the support from the Furnley House Foundation during 2023.
