Thank you, Chris and Lavender Fields Care Village

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Pocklington business owner Chris Mitchell who donated £500 for the signed Leeds United shirt and hospitality package as part of Karl’s fundraising campaign for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Chris is the chairman of Lavender Fields Care Village in Barmby Moor, between Pocklington and York, and a regular visitor to Cedarbarn Farm Shop and Café.

“The team at Cedarbarn all know I am a massive LUFC fan and go to every home game. When I saw the signed shirt in the Café and knew that it had been donated to raise funds for Macmillan, I had to buy it.

“As owners of the newly opened Lavender Fields Care Village near York, we are big supporters of Macmillan Nurses and, of course, Leeds United! It is a great honour to be involved in this, and so we send sincere best wishes to Karl. What a hero!” said Chris.

Thornton Le Dale father and son Paul and Jack Riley (husband and son of our lovely GM, Alison) and Pickering businessman Bob Batty organised the prize package. Lifelong Leeds United supporters the Rileys had the idea of organising a signed football shirt to raise money for Karl’s Ride of Their Lives appeal. Fellow LUFC supporter Bob Batty then offered two corporate hospitality tickets to the Bremner suite in the West Stand for any fixture in the 2024/25 season.

Huge thanks also to Paul, Jack and Bob for making this possible.
