Win a signed Leicester City Shirt!

As Leicester City look to defend the FA Cup they so brilliantly won in May 2021, we’re delighted to announce that we have two City Shirts - signed by the team for the Community Shield - available as part of our January fundraising event in aid of our Sport Sessions here at The Bridge Homelessness to Hope.

The first shirt will be available via auction and the second shirt will be available via a prize draw.
