Srivaddhanaprabha and four others died in a helicopter crash last month.

The LCFC Foxes Foundation has been renamed The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation in honour of Leicester’s late chairman.

Srivaddhanaprabha died, along with four others, when his helicopter crashed outside the King Power Stadium following a 1-1 draw with West Ham last month.

Tributes have continued to pour in for Srivaddhanaprabha with manager Claude Puel, players and senior staff flying to Bangkok for the funeral which started on Saturday.

They were due to return home on Tuesday after travelling to Thailand following Saturday’s 1-0 win at Cardiff, the Foxes’ first game after the tragedy.

The Foundation has raised almost £2million since opening in 2011-12, helping fund the renovation of Leicester Royal Infirmary’s Children’s Outpatient Ward and life-saving equipment for the Children’s Intensive Care Unit.

Srivaddhanaprabha made more than £4million in personal donations to the city’s universities, hospitals and charities.

A number of items will be auctioned off to help raise money for the foundation, including Jamie Vardy’s executive box for Saturday’s visit of Burnley.

Other items up available are the boots Vardy wore at Cardiff, with ‘Khun Vichai’ embroidered on them, and a pair of Kasper Schmeichel’s gloves.

Fans can bid for by emailing vsfauction@lcfc.co.uk with successful bidders notified by 10am on Thursday.

Two members of Mr Vichai’s staff – Kaveporn Punpare and Nusara Suknamai – pilot Eric Swaffer and his partner Izabela Roza Lechowicz were also killed in the crash.
