Still time to nominate your district heroes!

Blaby Achievement Awards

There’s not long left to get your nominations in for this year’s Outstanding Achievement Awards.

Blaby District Council is once again honouring the unsung people and groups in the district who make such an important difference to people’s lives in four categories:

Good Friend/Good Neighbour
Volunteer of the Year
Young Achiever of the Year
Best Community Group/Community Achievement.

Finalists will be invited to a prestigious evening at the Marriott Hotel, where winners will receive a trophy and £500, with runners-up awarded £250, on a night where their commitment and passion will rewarded.

The awards are generously supported by local businesses Davidsons Homes, Fosse Park, Ford & Slater DAF, The Marriott Leicester and Countryside Properties.

Nominees must either live, or make their incredible contribution within the district. With no limit on the number of people or groups one individual can nominate, the Council is encouraging everyone to put forward as many heroes as they can.

Don’t miss out! Nominations close at midnight on Sunday 12 August and can be submitted online at For more information, call 0116 272 7577.
