Almost £20,000 Raised For The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation
- An online auction for the newly-named Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation has raised £19,708
- The LCFC Foxes Foundation was renamed in honour of the Club’s late Chairman, Khun Vichai
- Three items were auctioned off, including Jamie Vardy’s boots, his executive box for the Burnley game and a pair of Kasper Schmeichel’s gloves
The LCFC Foxes Foundation, which has raised almost £2M for local charities since its formation in 2011/12, has been renamed in honour of Khun Vichai, whose generosity saw him make over £4M in personal donations to local hospitals, universities and charities in recent years.
Three items were auctioned off to help raise money for the Foundation, including the boots Jamie Vardy wore in last Saturday’s match at Cardiff with ‘Khun Vichai’ embroidered on them.
They went for an astonishing £9,008, while a pair of Kasper Schmeichel’s gloves also fetched £4,000. Meanwhile, Vardy’s executive box for the Burnley game on Saturday was also up for auction and raised £6,700.
The package includes a four-course meal, drinks and a personal visit by the striker. In total, all three items fetched an incredible £19,708 – all of which will go directly to The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation.
Under its new name, The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation will continue to use football as a force for good in the community in a way that reflects the generosity, care and love of the Club’s late Chairman.
