High Sheriff’s Thank You Reception for Charities and Volunteers.

As my year drew to an end it felt very natural to hold a Thank You Reception for all the extraordinary people doing amazing things in their community that I have met during my year as my gift to them to thank them, in some so small way, for their work and contribution.

It was attended by over 250 people and 80 organisations, and I wanted to ensure they felt seen, valued, recognised and thanked.

The unifying factor has been their selflessness and wish to improve the lives of others despite the challenges they face.

It has been a humbling experience to meet especially some of the smaller charities and organisation who don’t normally attract attention of the High Sheriff. I am in awe of what people do and I am proud that there is such kindness in Leicestershire.
