Leeds United announce £200k raised for Toby treatment
Leeds United have announced that funds for Toby Nye’s Neuroblastoma treatment have been successfully raised.
In a statement, the club said:
'It is with great pride that Leeds United can announce that the funds for Toby Nye’s Neuroblastoma treatment have been successfully raised.
Generous donations from Chairman Andrea Radrizzani and supporters of Leeds United, as well as a day’s salary from players and staff at the club have gone towards raising around £175,000 - the final £25,000 has been donated by Samuel Saiz this week.
Five-year-old Toby, from Leeds, will begin his treatment next week.
Leeds United Managing Director Angus Kinnear said: “We talk about family and togetherness a lot at our club, it’s a culture we have been determined to reinstate across everyone involved with Leeds and raising this money has truly been a team effort.
“Staff, players, corporate partners and our supporters have united together to give Toby the best opportunity with further treatment and I am incredibly proud of everyone concerned.”
Toby Nye will attend Saturday’s game with Millwall, the last time he can come to Elland Road before his great ember begins.'
