Leicestershire Business Awards 2017 winners

Community Impact Award Winners

We are very proud to announce that Leicester Animal Aid won the "Community Impact Award" at the Leicestershire Business Awards 2017 hosted by the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire). 

The award recognises the dedication of our staff and volunteers and our role within the Leicestershire Community. The Chamber also noted how innovative we were as a Charity and the judges were particularly impressed by our Community Pet Support Scheme.Izzy and award
