Charity Supports Leicestershire Business Executive of the Year Awards

The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity was one of many local organisations that supported the 2013 Leicestershire Business Executive of the Year Awards, which were held at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium on Thursday 7 November.

Among the list of accolades was the Young Business Executive of the Year; an award sponsored by the Charity, which provides interest-free loans to people within Leicestershire, in order to help start up new businesses.

Congratulations to Lizze Leary, the winner of the award on the night.

Lizze’s company, Kindred Sole, is a women’s online shoe boutique, which showcases a hand-picked selection of shoes from both recognised brands and up-and-coming designers.

Hugh Stevenson, Chairman of the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, formed part of the judging panel across all of the 2013 Leicestershire Business Executive of the Year Awards and was on hand to personally present Lizze with her thoroughly-deserved accolade.

Kindred Sole is one of many businesses in Leicestershire to have been aided by start-up financial assistance by the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

In addition to business loans, the Charity also provides education support to people looking to obtain a post-graduate qualification.
