Leicester Tigers marked this year’s Remembrance Day commemorations at Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup victory over Gloucester, while also gaining support for the club’s heritage project.
Tigers prop Pat Cilliers joined heritage team members Harvey Gardiner and Scott Clarke for a photocall while fans can support the club’s Foundation Monument project which aims to raise funds for a permanent tribute at Welford Road to those who have given their lives in armed conflict.
The club has received donations from fans throughout the season to receive a limited-edition Foundation Crown coin displaying the crest of the Leicestershire Regiment and Leicester Tigers.
Supporters will also have their name engraved at the bottom of the proposed 12-metre high archway, which will stand outside of the stadium’s main entrance.
All this week, TigersLotto is also giving fans the opportunity to support the initiative by donating five Foundation Crowns to the prize draw.
A new discovery app which will support the heritage project is in development and will offer fans an interactive way to learn about Tigers history.
Foundation Crowns can be obtained for a donation of £110 and include an invitation to the planned unveiling in November 2018. All proceeds from the Foundation Crown will go towards the club’s heritage projects.
A huge thank-you to all our supporters who have made a donation, and if you’d like to donate or get involved with our heritage project you can phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or find out more online below.
