Foxes Duo Assist With Environmental Activities
LCitC participants from Premier League Primary Stars and Premier League Inspires programmes joined up with the City duo to engage in green activities, while year six children from Sandfield Close Primary School built and decorated hedgehog houses, bird boxes and insect hotels.
The Club's community arm launched their Environmental Sustainability strategy in May 2022, and continued their good work by inviting young participants from Castle Mead Academy to get involved with the day's activities.
Danny Ward took part in bird box painting activities.
These included creating nature piles and helping to make the area surrounding King Power Stadium more nature-friendly, with assistance from Leicester City Council.
The Club were also joined by four members of our Silver Foxes programme, who assisted the young children and the Premier League pairing in the making of animal houses, and clearing the outdoor area of litter.
The Eco Foxes project will see staff and participants learn and focus their efforts around five different aspects; energy and utilities, transport, food, sourcing, recycling and waste management and nature.
Sandfield Close Primary School
Year six children from Sandfield Close Primary School engaged with the Club's Community programme.
As part of their environmental focus, LCitC have adopted a stretch of the River Soar that runs adjacent to Filbert Way, where they have implemented and will continue to uphold the management of the ecosystem in order to create a thriving and natural environment.
Other Eco Foxes initiatives includes planting trees at Western Park, cleaning up litter along the River Soar, and the introduction of the football boot reuse scheme in the Foxes Fanstore, while also encouraging staff to join in with their e-bike scheme to travel to sessions.
Wout Faes & Danny Ward
Wout Faes and Danny Ward also spent time with the children at Western Park and along the River Soar.
Regarding the tree cutting in the picture above, the tree had a lot of the bark missing almost all the way around. It was dying, and would soon become a hazard, which is why it was chosen to be taken down.
Looking ahead, the Club's next steps are to support families by encouraging them to utilise re-usable nappies that are more sustainable and cheaper in the long-term, and providing more opportunities for young people to aid in environmental social action.
