Press release

Karamjit Singh CBE, chairman of Leicester’s Hospitals said, “On behalf of Leicester’s Hospitals, we are tremendously saddened by the tragic events at the King Power Stadium. Our thoughts are very much with everyone who is connected to the football club and the families of those involved, at this very sad time.


“Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was a very special individual, not only with his involvement with the football club, but he made a real effort to engage with the fans and the community of Leicester. This is evident with the outpouring of emotion across the city and beyond.


“We have a very close relationship with the football club and the chairman was always incredibly supportive.  We remain extremely grateful for the very generous donation he made towards our new children’s hospital; he knew how to make the impossible possible, and has left behind a legacy which we are committed to keeping alive.  


“We once again thank the Srivaddhanaprabha family for everything they have done for the city of Leicester – you are in our thoughts and prayers.”
