Leicester Tigers club partner Breedon Group have been welcoming groups to enjoy matchdays from their Superbox at Welford Road.
Breedon is a leading construction materials group in Great Britain and Ireland and have kindly donated their box at Welford Road to groups so they can enjoy a matchday with a difference.
Breedon decided to offer the box to the staff of the Leicester Royal Infirmary for Tigers' Gallagher Premiership win over Gloucester earlier this month.
A spokesperson from Breedon said: “The Royal Infirmary is such an integral part of the city and surrounding community that it gave Breedon the ideal opportunity to thank them on behalf of everyone who has had need of their services. And let’s face it, without the midwifery team, a great many Tigers supporters might not be here at all!”
Most recently, a group of children and parents from the Barrie Wells Trust – a charity providing VIP experiences for seriously ill and disabled children through its Box4Kids initiative – were last weekend’s guests for Tigers' European Challenge Cup win over French club Pau.
The charity work with clubs, companies and individual businesses across the UK, inviting children from local hospitals to watch their favourite sports team or concert from the comfort of an executive box.
Youngsters also received their very own Leicester Tigers home shirt to help cheer on the boys.
Tom and Teresa Richards, who host groups of children on behalf of the Barrie Wells Trust, said: “It’s fantastic to be at Welford Road and a massive thanks to Breedon for inviting us.
“Children with us today range from seven to 17, who are being treated for a number of serious illnesses and experiences from some respite for the family as well as something to look forward to.”
