Leicester City To Thank Health Workers On NHS’s 72nd Anniversary

Leicester City will join its community of Premier League clubs in commemorating 72 years of the National Health Service on Sunday.

- Leicester City to thank the National Health Service's health workers on its 72nd anniversary this Sunday
- The NHS has been invaluable in the country's response to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic
- All 20 Premier League clubs will show their appreciation to NHS staff and key workers
- Foxes fans have donated over £150,000 to help fund a key facility at Leicester Royal Infirmary

Throughout the recent COVID-19 pandemic, NHS staff, frontline or otherwise, have dedicated themselves to protecting our population and treating those who have fallen unwell.

Since early 2020, the country has come together each Thursday to applaud the NHS and key workers in all sectors for their efforts as the world continues to respond to unprecedented circumstances. On Sunday, meanwhile, all 20 clubs of the Premier League will collectively express their gratitude and celebrate the NHS's 72nd birthday, marking its founding in 1948 after the Second World War. 

As part of the Club's commitment to serving its community, Leicester City supporters were provided an option to donate a percentage of their ticket rebates to charity earlier this year.

Over £150,000 has so far been raised for the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation, supporting the renovation of the LRI’s Kinmonth Unit – a key facility for University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust. Elsewhere, profits from all 2019/20 shirts sold between now and the end of the season will be donated to the Foundation, supporting the Leicestershire community, its response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its equality and diversity efforts.

Join us on Sunday at 5pm BST as we thank all health workers for their dedication and acknowledge their value to our society.
