Leicester City v Watford Match Sponsorship 2011
Wish no: # 4. 5. 6. 7, 8, 9, 10
Edgar’s Gift were the match sponsors for this game in October and that meant we were able to take along 7 young people to experience a VIP night out at the football.
The group got a tour of the ground and a 3 course meal before the game. Just before kick off the whole group were invited to go on the pitch for a photo with the team captains and officials. After watching the game they got to select the man of the match and Richie Wellens was awarded this honour. The group got to meet Sven Goran Eriksson, Alan Birchenall and also had a photo taken with one of our Patrons Chris weale. It was a great night out and everyone went away from it with some special memories.
A week later we received a letter from the chief executive at Leicester City Susan Whelan thanking us and giving some kind comments about our charity. They wanted to have us as their guests at the game and so enclosed a cheque for £1500 to refund our sponsorship so that we could fund other gifts…What a wonderful gesture, we are so grateful.
