One year on from the tragic events where the Leicester City chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and 4 others were sadly killed, the Walk For Vichai team have arranged a second walk prior to this Saturday’s game against Burnley
This follows on from the first memorial walk where 50,000 people joined to pay their respects.
Those wishing to walk in memory are being asked to meet at the De Montfort University, Magazine Square at 12.15pm, and the walk will start at 1.15pm. This starting point has changed from last year's walk, which began at Jubilee Square. The organisers are urging people not to go there this time.
This year the Walk For Vichai team will be raising money for the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation. Every season, the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation select a number of local charities to pledge the funds that they raise to, in order to better the lives of those that most need support.
The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation has supported dozens of local causes throughout its seven years, including Leicester Hospitals Charity, LOROS, Rainbows Children’s Hospice, Leicestershire Children’s Holiday Centre and by installing life-saving defibrillators in key areas around the county. It welcomes applications from smaller local charities https://www.lcfc.com/fans-community/foundation/charity-policy
