On Thursday 16th January, Craig attended the Leicester Mercury Sports Awards, a fantastic event celebrating the top sports stars from across the region.

Other stars in attendance included England goalkeeping legend Peter Shilton OBE, former rugby stars Neil Back MBE and Graham Rowntree, and Olympic medallist Jo Jackson. There was also a host of current local sporting stars, including players from the Leicester Tigers and Leicestershire County Cricket Club.

Craig presented the Community Award which was won by Cherie D Silva, current Chair of the Leicester Athletics Development Group, who strives to make sure that the sport is accessible to all communities, ages and abilities in Leicester.

Craig said: “It was a real pleasure to attend this fantastic event, full of inspirational stories and incredibly dedicated athletes.”
