New Friends of the Fox business club gets seal of approval from Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire

A new business club for supporters of the Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal has launched with the endorsement of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire.

Launched by Leicester Hospitals Charity, the new Friends of the Fox business club aims to provide local businesses and organisations with an opportunity to support charitable projects within Leicester’s Hospitals.

Most notably, one of the first aims of the club will be to help support the £7.5m Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal to help create a new, dedicated children’s hospital at the Leicester Royal Infirmary – the first of its kind in the East Midlands.

Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Mr Mike Kapur OBE, a patron of the Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal and a significant figure in the Leicester business community, urged local businesses and organisations to join the new Friends of the Fox business club and support the appeal.

“I’m honoured to have been asked to be a patron of the Leicester Children’s Hospital Appeal and to be able to play my part in making the new Leicester Children’s Hospital a reality,” says Mr Kapur.

“We still have a way to go, but I know that with the support of the Leicester business community, we will achieve that goal. It’s more important now than ever before that we support our local NHS and I urge local businesses to do their part by signing up to become a Friend of the Fox.”

Leicester Hospitals Charity’s Head of Fundraising, Claire Campbell, hailed the exciting launch of the new initiative.

“The time is ripe to harness the big hearts of the region’s business leaders in helping make a difference to local children and their families,” says Claire.

Friends of the Fox Chair, Lisa Glover-Maxted, says: “The Leicester business community has made such an important difference to our hospitals this year, so I am delighted as Chair of Friends of the Fox to launch this incredible initiative on behalf of Leicester Hospitals Charity,

“I encourage all businesses across Leicestershire and Rutland to consider joining this fantastic community and help us to make our hospital services even better for generations to come.”
