This year introduced a new award in honour of the late Sir Timothy Brooks and his twenty five years service to Young Leicestershire. The trophy is awarded to an organisation that has had an outstanding impact within their community.

Congratulations to Waterfront Academy for being the first winners of this honourable award. Waterfront Academy is a community youth facility which supports young people and aims to provide with homework, general advice and having fun in a safe and supportive environment. The Academy strongly focuses on personal development through boxing, youth work and a variety of interventions and works towards creating a more cohesive community between young and old. Michael Burgess has been a strong supporter for Young Leicestershire during this time and participated in training programmes, consortium meetings and is active within the community. Well done Waterfront Academy.
