Grahame Gardner set to showcase our Healthcare Heroes!


We are thrilled to announce we have joined forces with the Leicester Mercury and LeicestershireLive Heroes Awards 2020.

 Grahame Gardner will be the main sponsor of the Healthcare Heroes category at a glittering awards ceremony due to take place on Tuesday 8 September 2020 at the King Power Stadium.


The Healthcare Hero award celebrates the hundreds of health workers in our region, both paid and voluntary, who make such a difference to so many people. Nominees consist of nurses, doctors or voluntary workers who dedicate their life to a health organisation.


James Greenlees, chief executive officer at Grahame Gardner Ltd, said: “The UK is currently going  through one of the most challenging periods in its history, and supporting the nation are the thousands of healthcare professionals up and down the country who truly are our unsung heroes.

With this in mind, we are incredibly honoured to be sponsoring the Healthcare Heroes category.


“As one of the UK’s leading uniform specialists, we have always worked closely with the healthcare sector, but as a designated essential business throughout this dreadful pandemic, we’ve endeavoured to support their work by ensuring a consistent and high-volume flow of medical workwear reaches where it’s needed and on-time. It’s been a privilege to see at first-hand how frontline and key support workers from across the healthcare sector have gone above and beyond to look after those who need it. We want to thank them for risking their lives to selflessly save others, highlighting what they have achieved not just in recent times but over their careers.


“Grahame Gardner Ltd is a fourth-generation family owned and run company with over 110 years of history in Leicester, catering for a range of sectors including healthcare but also veterinary, corporate, hospitality, schools and hair and beauty amongst many others. We’re really proud to be supporting our community in these awards and wish all entrants the very best of luck.”
