CHA stands for Countrywide Holidays Association- an organisation founded by the Rev. TA Leonard in 1894 under the name Co-operative Holidays. He started taking young factory workers from his congregation into the nearby countryside for a short holiday. The idea blossomed and soon several guests houses were bought in various various parts of the country to accommodate people wanting a walking holiday. Local clubs were formed when people returned home from holiday enthused by their experiences. The name eventually changed to the Countrywide Holidays Association. The brand name is now owned by Ramblers Holidays.

Leicester CHA has been organising rambles for people of all ages and abilities since it was founded in 1907. Centenary celebrations included a planting of a tree in Watermead Park in the city and the unveiling of a commemorative seat on Windmill Hill, Woodhouse Eaves, in the county.
