At the recent Leicestershire Tourism & Hospitality Awards 2023 at the Leicester Athena, the Peter Le Marchant Trust achieved a ‘Commended’ award in the ‘Best Day Out’ category. This is a brand new category for the Leicestershire Hospitality & Tourism Awards, who were celebrating their 30 year anniversary last night. The ‘Best Day Out’ award was sponsored by Visit Leicester, with all 14 nominees voted by the public, which made the Trust’s nomination even more special. The Peter Le Marchant Trust’s Chair, Caroline Phillips attended with her husband, Dennis. “Being recognised for a Best Day Out award is a remarkable achievement for the Trust, especially when you consider the National Space Centre was runner-up in this category and the Great Central Railway was the winner. It's thanks to the Trust's amazing staff, crew and volunteers who always aim to give everyone who visits their ‘best day out’.” Congratulations to everyone who was nominated, and of course the winners!
