LCC Patron Federico Collalbrigo has set up the Fico fund in memory of his close friend Filippo Corsini who was tragically killed by an HGV in 2016.
The aim of the fund is to provide resources for LCC to;
1. Educate industries that use HGVs on cyclist safety
2. Campaign for better road safety initiatives to protect cyclists
3. Scrutinise the way the police and justice system works and lobby for justice for victims and their families.
The Fund was officially launched on Thursday 14th March 2019 with an exquisite dinner kindly hosted by Pertersham Nurseries. This was a very special night as it was Filippo’s birthday and raised an astounding £35,000 for LCC through ticket sales and a wine auction.
This year Federico will be working with LCC to host the second fundraising event. We will be increasing the venue capacity so that we can raise more for the Fico Fund.
If you feel passionate about road safety for cyclists please consider donating to the fund.
