It was a real pleasure to meet the pupils of King Edward VII College in Coalville on 1 March 2017. Deana and Julia, took part in the ‘mock interview’ day, they saw just how much talent and passion there is in young people, some with clear cut career paths already in place, others taking their time to see what develops!
It was memorable to see “the smiles on the faces of those students who particularly lack confidence and have overcome this as a result of their interviews. Volunteering your time at events such as this makes a colossal difference to the lives of young people. You have widened their horizons, raised their aspirations, improved their confidence and made them smile. Your hard work has literally changed the lives of the young people you interacted with; neither we nor they can possibly thank you enough!”
Alice Wealleans, Senior Leader for Employability
Deana and Julia are in the great position to offer young people the chance to get meaningful community based volunteering opportunities in Coalville. Why not get in touch and see how you can be part of our team of Coalville Heroes!
Our first 6 months have been amazing!!!
This is just a thank you to everyone who believed in us in the beginning, who are sharing the journey with us; who we have already met and will meet in 2017. Starting a new business takes a lot of passion, courage and conviction, so a special thanks to our families and friends too! We most certainly couldn’t have done on our own!!

On Monday 31 October, Coalville Heroes volunteers are providing free tasters of lovely hot soup between 12 noon and 2pm on the landing in the main NWLDC offices.
If you work in the NWLDC office bring along your mug, we want to be more green by not using disposable cups if we can help it!
If you are a visitor to the offices, we will provide you a disposable cup with lid!
Take part in our November Challenge whilst collecting your free taster!
Tell us what you could do with £10, £500 or £10k to improve Coalville in some way, it also helps if you can tell us what benefits there could be if we followed up on your idea! Flyers will be available to fill in on the day or Email your answers to Julia & Deana
The Street Art Trailer can be brought to your home, business or event and we can supply a street artist and paints if you need them – we do have to make a small charge for use of paints and transport costs, plus the street artist hourly fee.
These youngsters were practicing their names using brightly coloured paints and white outlines. Julia, one of our Directors was very pleased with her JB tag created by Ample the artist assisting on the day!
Great to see so many people at Woodstock at Whitwick yesterday. Thanks to Big Rock Promotions for all their efforts. We played giant jigsaws, Coalville pen racing and hangman on the Filigi (find it live it give it) and Hero Project stall.
