Thanks for supporting Lord Mayor of Leicester’s Stadium to Stadium walk

Members of the Charity Link Team, including CEO Susan McEniff, had a great time on Friday 10th May with everyone who supported The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Leicester, Councillor Dr Susan Barton’s stadium to stadium walk to help raise funds and awareness of our work.

The event was held in conjunction with United Leicester, a partnership of Leicester City Football Club, Leicestershire Cricket Club, Leicester Tigers and Leicester Riders and organised with help from LCFC in the Community.

We started at LCFC King Power Stadium with a welcome from LCFC legend Steven Walsh before heading along the Great Central Way and Aylestone Meadows to Leicestershire Cricket Club (Uptonsteel Country Ground, Grace Road), where we had a great welcome by the team there (and plenty of muffins and fruit to keep us going!).

We then headed to Leicester Tigers (Mattioli Woods Welford Road Stadium), where we refueled with flapjacks and crisps before having the opportunity to get on the pitch.

We then went through Leicester City Centre to Leicester Riders (Mattioli Stadium) for tea and coffee and back to the King Power Stadium where we were cheered home and then everyone received a certificate and medal.

Over £500 has been raised in support of our work.

Thank you to everyone involved in this fantastic fundraising afternoon!
