LeicestershireLive Heroes 2020

Humility, dedication, bravery and heartfelt concern for the welfare and well-being of their fellow humans were the mark of LeicestershireLive’s Heroes of 2020. Earlier this year, we asked readers to nominate their local heroes over 10 categories and learned about some of the incredible efforts and achievements of our neighbours, friends and family. It culminated with people from across the city and county coming together to recognise the individual acts of kindness and courage that singled out the best among us.

Befitting the rather peculiar times we find ourselves living in with the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown, the awards  ceremony which was headlined sponsored by the Leicestershire Police and Crime Commissioner was a virtual affair. Hosted remotely by the charismatic Des Coleman, of EastEnders and ITV Central weather presenting fame, it was no damp squib, with the online audience invited to dress up to the nines and share their photos on social media to provide the evening with the sense of occasion it deserved.
