A glittering list of 70 schools, businesses, voluntary and community groups across Leicester and Leicestershire have picked up Queen’s Platinum Jubilee awards for their outstanding efforts to improve their local communities.
The winners – each representing a year of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign – have been announced by Mike Kapur, the Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire (pictured above).
I would like to congratulate all the award winners and nominees.
"In recent times, we have experienced unprecedented and extraordinarily difficult times and yet throughout, it has been wonderful to see schools, businesses, volunteer and community groups across the city and county have remained unwavering in their commitment to making a big difference in their local communities.
I'm delighted to shine a spotlight on the outstanding work that takes place and would like to thank everyone who took the time to make a nomination.”Person: Mike Kapur, Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire
Each award winner will be presented with their award by either the Lord-Lieutenant or one of his Deputy Lieutenants later in the year.
