Leicestershire Uniting ‘Together In Hope’ ahead of

The University of Leicester’s Vice-Chancellor is working in partnership with the CEO of Leicester City Football Club and the Bishop of Leicester, on a celebration of community spirit in Leicester and Leicestershire this weekend, supported by a raft of other public figures. Headed by Professor Nishan Canagarajah, Susan Whelan and Bishop Martyn Snow, Together In Hope will highlight messages of encouragement and the many acts of kindness and concern for one another that have been springing up during lockdown. Sports, education, business, charity, arts, community and faith leaders and personalities are supporting ‘Together In Hope’ on social media, rallied by Turi King, Professor of Public Engagement at the University of Leicester, who is well known for her work on the discovery of the body of Richard III, and Revd Dr Tom Wilson of the St Philip’s Centre, Leicester’s internationally recognised interfaith centre. Using the hashtags #TogetherInHope and #WeAreLeicester the coalition of leaders and personalities invite anyone with connections to the city and county to tell the world what we celebrate about Leicester and Leicestershire and how we’ll come through this current challenge and move forward together in hope. You could produce a piece of art, poetry, make a film clip, create some spoken word, share a recipe, write a letter, pose for a photo with the Together in Hope branding, highlight your community and charitable work, whatever you like that tells the world how great Leicester is and how we’ll continue moving forward together in hope. Professor Nishan Canagarajah, President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Leicester said: “Leicester is an incredible city. There is so much diversity and unity in one place. It has the world at your doorstep. “I am proud of Leicester and it is one of the reasons why I want to champion this great initiative, Together in Hope, to ensure we come out of this lockdown stronger and more united. “It’s more important now than ever to shine a light on what is great about our city. Together we can be a beacon of hope for others.” Susan Whelan, Leicester City Football Club Chief Executive, said: “Leicester is a truly special place, whose diverse and passionate community has been both the backdrop and the inspiration for some of the city’s finest achievements. “As we’ve seen throughout this pandemic, it’s also a community that comes together to support each other when support is most needed, which gives me great confidence that we can overcome the current challenges and emerge from the lockdown stronger than ever before.” The Rt Revd Martyn Snow, Bishop of Leicester, said: “We’re launching Together In Hope because we’ve been so encouraged by the way people have come together across Leicester and Leicestershire during the pandemic and lockdown. “We want the world to know about this and we want to tell people that our diversity is our strength. “We believe that this diversity and togetherness will enable us to emerge from this crisis with renewed hope for a society in which we care for one another and care for our planet. I’m delighted that so many partners have already come on board with this initiative and we hope you will join us and start sharing stories of Together In Hope.”

Riders Players Take Tentative Steps Back

A number of Leicester Riders players have restarted their personal training at the Morningside Arena, as they start the recovery from the long break for the coronavirus crisis. The Arena remains closed to the public, but has introduced a number of new procedures and protocols, consistent with Government guidance for elite sportsman. The Arena is not expected to open until later in the summer, but preparations have already started to create a safe environment for returning users and fans, while allowing a number of Riders players to undertake their own individual training programmes. Riders Chairman and Director of the Arena Kevin Routledge emphasized that players safety is paramount in these initial periods, “We have taken the opportunity during this down period to get in a number of contractors and undertake a deep clean of the venue, and to start a number of refurbishment and changes, that will inevitably be required once we officially allowed to open, to cope with the residual risk from the coronavirus crisis.” “Visitors and fans will see quite a few changes to the arena, and we also have a number of other major changes going through a design phase.” “In the meantime, we have done a complete risk assessment and risk mitigation plan in line with the latest Government guidance and developed an on-line booking system that will be used by everyone visiting the arena.” “That includes a pre-visit on-line screening, and everyone will be scanned in, temperature checks made, and there will be very tight controls on access to the arena, and the activities that take place during this period.” “A number of the Riders players have been pressing us to allow them access for their own off-season training rituals, and we are using those visits to fine tune our processes and procedures.” “We have had a number of enquiries for potential uses of the arena in July and August and we want to have fully developed procedures in place, and have them fully tested.” “Of course no one is quite sure when that opening might be, and what constraints there will be for indoor play and events.” “Basketball England have issued their first stage guidance and we are fully compliant with that.” “But the arena has a wide range of users and Events from sports to music and corporate, and we are in close discussions with the Promoters to find new dates for as many of these Events as possible.” “We have also written to ticket holders offering them refunds or the ability to transfer to future Events.” Riders will also auction players home Red playing shirts from the 2019-20 season from Monday 22nd June via the clubs’ online shop. Riders are looking to raise funds for their charity, the Leicester Riders Foundation, to help sustain it through the corona virus pandemic and are asking for supporters to bid if they can on their favourite players’ game worn shirt. The Foundation has continued to operate at a reduced level on education related projects for young people throughout the crisis.
