Congratulations to our chairman
On behalf of all our HQ team, our clubs and members, we’d like to offer our congratulations to Young Leicestershire’s chairman, Robert Constable-Maxwell, who today recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list. Appointed MBE for services to Young Leicestershire, Robert has been involved with the charity for 30 years, and has been chairman of our organisation since 1984. Mr Constable-Maxwell told the BBC news he was “extremely delighted and surprised” by the honour – and they went on to explain that Young Leicestershire “offers young people the opportunity to do activities such as football, table tennis, music, computers, arts and crafts. They can also join an annual 100-mile canoe event.” Robert said: “The clubs give children the opportunity to develop skills and an environment to flourish.” He added that his MBE was a “lovely endorsement” for his work with young people.
