Alongside a constant flow of fundraising throughout each season, the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation pride themselves on organising enjoyable events in aid of a great cause.

Every year, the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation has selected a number of local charities to donate to, as the Club continues to give back to a community that has in turn provided incredible support.

King Power Stadium is often the venue for some fantastic nights that are committed to raising funds for those in need, with a string taking place in recent months.

On the ground where it was first lifted, members of the Blue Army flocked to the home of the Foxes towards the end of the 2016/17 season to get their photo taken with the Premier League trophy.

With over 30,000 schoolchildren from across the Leicestershire region fortunate to see the prestigious piece of silverware during its time in City’s possession, fans donated generously as they took selfies and group photos pitchside.

A number of iconic former Leicester City players descended on Filbert Way for ‘An Evening With LCFC Legends’, where supporters had the opportunity to quiz Steve Walsh, Matt Elliott, Gerry Taggart and Steve Guppy on their time at the Club.

The event proved to be a huge hit, with a total of £9,000 raised on a night which saw supporters treated to some highly-entertaining tales from the ex-Foxes quartet.

Further fundraising for the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation followed in the form of Sellebrity Soccer, as a star-studded line-up of celebrities took to the King Power Stadium pitch to showcase their footballing talent.

Thousands watched on from the stands as TV personalities, actors, pop stars and former sporting professionals played out a thrilling match in aid of charity.

Of course, the campaign wouldn’t be complete without it being rounded off by Club Ambassador Alan ‘The Birch’ Birchenall’s annual end of season run.

Joined by players, friends and supporters alike, the Birch raised vital funds during City’s final game of the campaign against AFC Bournemouth for life-saving CPR equipment and defibrillators after collapsing at an awards ceremony in January.

With the support of the Blue Army, over £1.5 million has been raised for hundreds of local charities over the past few decades, and there’s still plenty more to come…
