Leicestershire First Leadership Award for Directors of Giving World Online

Now how great is that!!!!

 

It’s the very first award for Rama and Sujata and for Giving World Online. It is absolutely fantastic to be recognised for the work you do.

 

The morning started with both of us nervous and excited.

 

Allyson Jeffery (Headstorm Marketing) representing Leicestershire First arrived early. She was swiftly followed by Andy Gilchrist (freelance journalist), Martyn Traynor (CEO Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce), David Palmer of Blaby and Whetstone Boys Club (Highly commended for the Leicestershire First Leadership Award), Sonia Parmar (BBC Radio Leicester) and David Lindley (Deputy Chief Constable of Leicestershire). Also present were photographers and journalists from both Leicestershire First and the Leicester Mercury.

 

We had our priorities in order with teas and coffees first followed by the presentations made by Martyn Traynor on behalf of Leicestershire First to David Palmer and ourselves. This was followed by the photo shoots for both the Leicester Mercury and Leicestershire First. Our grins were well and truly fixed by the end of the session. How models cope with the cameras I will never know.

 

Before we had time to gulp a coffee Sonia whisked us a way for a radio interview and I must say Sonia hats off to you for creating and excellent piece for us. Listen to the interview.

 

We really cannot begin to thank everyone for taking the time and effort to make this presentation very special. Andy and Allyson you were stars in creating the Mercury press release and in organising the event.

 

Our special thanks goes to David Lindley for kindly nominating us and bringing us out of our publicity free closet. 

 

Before I finish I’d just like to offer our gratitude to our patrons Charles, Marthe and Therese for their unfailing support over the years: to our Trustees who have been a rock for the organisation and us personally and to all our volunteers who serve selflessly and believe in our values. The credit for this award goes to all of you because we couldn’t have done this without you.
