Leicester City are continuing their tradition of helping the Leicestershire community with their Gift of a Wish 2020. Applications from organisations are open until Friday 24 April.

The 2020 Gift of a Wish programme will be a continuation of the tradition that saw Khun Vichai give generously to community causes after becoming the Club’s Chairman in 2010 up to his tragic passing in 2018.

Now, in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, Leicester City and the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation have already began supporting Leicestershire’s health services through University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust and Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, and supporting Age UK Rutland and Leicestershire.

The Gift of a Wish 2020 will seek to add to that support with a series of grants for smaller organisations, including those supporting the community’s immediate coronavirus response, and those whose work will be significant in its future emergence from the crisis.
