Leicester Hospitals Charity, with the support of charitable trusts, launched the Ourspace Appeal to create a purpose-built cancer unit for children and young people at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and they are already well beyond the £1million mark in gifts and pledges on the way to a £1.4million target.
Tigers’ guests of honour Jamie and Amy Dronfield delivered the matchball on behalf of Ourspace just ahead of kick-off in Tigers’ seven-try victory over Worcester Warriors and supporters were able to buy wristbands and make donations throughout the evening.
A group of Ourspace supporters also performed a lap of honour at half-time as they build up towards running the London Marathon this month.
