FANS RAISE £68,000 FOR GREENPEACE

The donation comes after the club announced a partnership with Greenpeace in June 2016

An outstanding £68,000 has been raised for international environmental group Greenpeace, thanks to the generous support from Leeds United and their supporters.

Last season saw £5 from every Junior home replica shirt donated to the iconic campaigning organisation, which will now go towards the vital work they do to protect the environment. 

The donation comes after the club announced a partnership with Greenpeace in June 2016, whereby their iconic logo was displayed on the front of all Junior home replica shirts for the 2016/17 season.

John Sauven, Executive Director of Greenpeace UK, said:

"We're very grateful for the support Leeds United fans have given us over the last 12 months.

“In particular, I'd like to thank the young people who have bought and worn Leeds United tops with the Greenpeace logo on the front.

“As well as promoting Greenpeace, you have allowed us to get on with the work of defending our environment - from tackling the flow of plastic waste into our oceans to protecting rainforests and much more.

“Thank you to everyone at Leeds United for supporting this crucial work".

Leeds United Executive Director Paul Bell, said:

“We are delighted with the money raised from the partnership with Greenpeace. 

“The organisation is one of the most important and is highly recognised across the world for raising awareness of some of the major environmental issues the world is facing.   We are proud to see our fans getting behind this unique initiative and supporting such a worthy cause and to raise so much money over the season.”

From everyone at Leeds United, thanks to all fans for their generous support.
