Volunteers from club partner Breedon helped to raise almost £3,000 in support of the MND Association at the club’s home game against London Irish on November 27.
Bucket collections at Mattioli Woods Welford Road raised £2,991.04 in support of the motor neurone disease charity, of which Leicester Tigers Defence Coach Kevin Sinfield is an ambassador.
Volunteers from Breedon met Sinfield post-match, who praised the Tigers Family for their generosity.
“The support for the MND Association from Leicester Tigers fans, staff, players and our sponsors has been unbelievable,” said Sinfield.
“For people to take the time and make the effort on a matchday, when they are within their right to want to relax from their own work weeks, to be out in the cold and raising funds and awareness is amazing.
“The support we have, whether it be our partners or fans, at Leicester Tigers is something special and this is another example of that at work.
“Thank you to the volunteers, those who donated and everybody who has been sharing the stories and raising awareness about what we need to do to find a cure for MND and those suffering.”
Bucket collections will be a part of matchday again at Mattioli Woods Welford Road when Leicester Tigers host Gloucester Rugby in the inaugural Ed Slater Cup on Saturday, December 24.
