- The LCFC Foxes Foundation is renamed The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation in honour of Leicester City’s late Chairman
- Khun Vichai tragically lost his life, alongside four others, on Saturday 27 October at King Power Stadium
- A number of items will be auctioned off to help raise money for The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation, including Jamie Vardy’s Executive Box for Saturday’s game against Burnley and a pair of Kasper Schmeichel’s gloves
- Khun Vichai’s generosity saw him make over £4M in personal donations to local hospitals, universities and charities in recent years
Since its formation in 2011/12, the Foundation has raised almost £2M for local charities, helping fund a renovation of Leicester Royal Infirmary’s Children’s Outpatient Ward and life-saving equipment desperately needed by the Children’s Intensive Care Unit.
The LCFC Foxes Foundation aimed to use football as a force for good in the community.
Under its new name, The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation will continue to build on that life-changing work in a way that reflects the generosity, care and love of a man who made over £4M in personal donations to the city’s universities, hospitals and charities in recent years.
Among the dozens of local causes supported since it was first formed in 2011 are Leicester Hospitals Charity, LOROS and Rainbows Children’s Hospice, as well as the installation of life-saving defibrillators in key areas around Leicestershire.
