The objective of the Leicester Mercury’s Heroes of Leicestershire Awards is to celebrate and honour achievements of remarkable people who make Leicestershire a better place.

The awards will recognize people from all walks of life that inspire people with their acts of bravery, determination and selflessness.

The award categories target singular contributions throughout the community from good neighbours, volunteers and people integral to our wellbeing in our day to day lives.

The awards are in their third year and have been well received by the Leicestershire Community.

This year’s event will be held on Thursday 19th July 2018 at the King Power Stadium, Filbert Way, Leicester, LE2 7FL.
