Players, backroom staff and office staff at Leeds United, along with workers from the Leeds United Foundation and their parent company Aser will donate one day’s salary on Friday 27th October, the same day the Whites face Sheffield United.

Various fundraising activities are taking place at Elland Road in the build up to the game allowing supporters to join and support Team Toby.

Toby and his family met with me recently and I was deeply moved by his situation, as we all are.

At Leeds United we do things as a family, Toby is part of our family and he needs our help, I know our supporters will unite behind us and together we can get him the treatment he needs to get better.”
