Now in their sixteenth year, friends, family and workmates can put forward individuals and groups who they think deserve recognition for making a difference in their community. Nominations close at midnight on Sunday 11 August 2019 and can be submitted in one of four categories:
Good Friend/Good Neighbour – Sponsored by Aggregate Industries
Volunteer of the Year – Sponsored by Leicester Marriott Hotel
Young Achiever of the Year – Sponsored by Ford & Slater

Finalists and their guests will be invited to the prestigious evening ceremony at the Marriott Hotel on Thursday 03 October, which celebrates and honours all of the finalists. £750 of prize money will be available in each category.
Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, said: “We are now in our sixteenth year of these awards, and we are so proud to hold them to recognise the inspirational people who continue to make this district a great place to live, work and visit.
“Our thanks go to our sponsors who have helped to ensure these awards are possible. I look forward to reading the nominations and encourage everyone to put forward the person or group they think deserves to be recognised before the deadline.”
