Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner
I say a sense of public duty is what makes us great as a nation and makes our city and two counties great. A spirit of generosity, our kindness to one another, our collective courage when facing adversity and our selflessness when helping others.
Since becoming a part of this process, I realise that what makes Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland an example to all is the selflessness and dedication of its people to their community.
Many things can define heroes, but the spirit of generosity, kindness, courage, selflessness and dedication are the lasting qualities that make me bristle with pride.
To me, a hero’s commitment illustrates that they are not content with others taking on the responsibility of keeping our communities safe. They step up to the plate.
Protecting the community is central to my role. I am always out and about meeting the public and meeting community organisations that do so much good across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, and I get to see the effects of living in such a caring community. It is fitting that we celebrate our everyday heroes, and I am proud to be sponsoring this event.
