This has already been a landmark year for Leicester Tigers with victory in the Gallagher Premiership Final and the launch of a women’s team at Championship level, and now the club’s Foundation is preparing for a celebration of its own with the unveiling of its monument at the stadium.
The Leicester Tigers Foundation Monument, which was designed by Harvey Gardiner, is due to be unveiled later this year and takes pride of place in the plaza between Mattioli Woods Welford Road and the new Brooklyn Hotel.
The unique Tigers head design sits six metres tall with plaques commemorating the club’s players who sadly died in conflict, including those who represented both the Tigers and Leicestershire Regiment, alongside players who served in World Wars and also the names of those people who have kindly made this project a reality, with their donations through the Foundation crown.
The Leicester Tigers Foundation hope that this monument will not only honour those great servants who went before us but also offer inspiration and guidance for those who want to make a positive difference to those in their local communities and beyond.
As the final touches are now being made to the Monument ahead of its installation, there is just one more week to make a donation towards a Foundation Crown and etch your own name in the history of the club before the deadline at 10.00pm next Friday (July 15).
By donating £110, you will not only own a unique Leicester Tigers Foundation Monument Crown but also have the choice to select a name to be engraved on a plaque of the monument which will also entitle you to an invitation for the unveiling.
