About 7events Local CIC
7events Local CIC aims to enhance the health, well-being and self-confidence of people from selected communities within Leicester and Leicestershire by offering opportunities to participate in physical activities, the arts and social events that they might otherwise not engage with.
From 2020 as a CIC (Community Interest Company) we are running programmes, events and activities which benefit individuals, communities and organisations through this. .
Previously, the group of friends pulled together to complete a series of challenges and events to raise awareness and lots of money for local charities and to meet community needs in Leicester.
The first campaign included 24 hours in the gym, 13 miles up and over muddy obstacles, 10k run through Cannock Chase, 100 miles on a bike and 26 miles at the London Marathon – not everyone’s idea of fun!
