Leeds United, and the whole community of Leeds, are pitching in to help a child in need. If you haven’t heard, a four-year old Leeds fan named Toby Nye has a rare form of cancer, and is in need of treatment. All of the employees at Leeds United are donating a day’s worth of wages to help his family pay for the needed treatment, and today is that day. Plenty of people associated with Leeds and Leeds United have lent their support to Toby and the club’s effort towards raising the needed money.

The club has asked that fans give a minute’s applause during the 4th minute of play in tonight’s match against Sheffield United inhonour of young Toby Nye.
