Nicky Kandola

Charity Manager

Nicky Kandola

Nicky came to the charity after a career in education, including six years as head teacher of a large inner-city primary school in Leicester.

She has worked in and with schools across the region for 16 years so is well-placed to take on a pastoral role with the children when needed.

Nicky had direct involvement with Leicester Children’s Holidays after several children from her schools over the years enjoyed holidays offered by the charity. In her role as charity manager, she regularly accompanies the children on holiday, helps to look after them and makes sure they have a great time.

She is Leicester born and bred and is especially proud to work with our charity after her aunt and best friend’s father-in law went to Mablethorpe with Leicester Children’s Holidays many years ago when they were children. Just like many children our charity has helped, they had very fond memories.

Nicky lives in Leicester with her husband and has two grown-up children of whom she says she is “incredibly proud”. In her spare time Nicky loves spending time with her family, holidays and going to the theatre.
