Awards Ceremony

The 2018 Leicester Mercury Sports Awards will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony at Leicester Tigers Stadium on Thursday 17th January 2019. Guests will be welcomed to the evening with a Champagne reception before enjoying a fabulous three course gourmet meal followed by the winner of each category being presented with their award. A host of sporting celebrities will attend the evening and will present each award alongside the category sponsor.


The night will raise money for Rainbows Hospice which is based in Loughborough and opened its doors in 1994. At Rainbows, they are dedicated to meeting the needs of the children and young people from the East Midlands who come to the hospice with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Their work extends throughout the child’s or young person’s life and beyond into bereavement support as required. Each year they need to raise £4.2m to keep the fourteen-bed hospice operational. This money is donated by generous individuals and businesses from across the East Midlands who have taken Rainbows into their hearts


Through a small game and silent auction which will take place throughout the evening, we plan to raise much needed funds for these truly worthwhile causes.
