Athletes from Blaby, Charnwood, Harborough, Hinckley & Bosworth, Leicester City, Melton, North West Leicestershire and Oadby & Wigston have been awarded the funding to support them financially with competition entry fees, transport costs and high quality equipment to ensure they achieve the highest possible standards in their sport. Tomorrow (Thursday 28th February) a second Leicester-Shire & Rutland GO GOLD Talented Athlete Presentation evening will see the young athletes will be attending County Hall, hosted by the Chairman of Leicestershire County Council.
