Millwall fans show yet more generosity

Leeds tickets refunds put towards charitable causes

24 March 2018

Millwall fans have once again displayed their charitable side by rallying together and donating considerable sums to causes for supporters of two rival clubs.

The Lions faithful who travelled to watch their side defeat Leeds United at Elland Road back in January were, because of breach of regulation regarding pricing, due a part refund.

But rather than pocket the money they were owed themselves, Millwall fans came together and decided to put their refunds towards different charity initiatives, including the fundraising drive for young West Ham United supporter Isla Caton, who is suffering with neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. A total of £891 was donated to Isla's family's efforts to raise money for lifesaving treatment in America.

A further £563 has been put towards young Leeds fan Toby Nye, who suffers with the same illness, and whose family are also raising money for crucial treatment.

The money remaining from the total generated by the refunds has been split equally between Millwall Community Trust and Millwall Lionesses to assist with their ongoing operations.

The club would like to place on record its admiration and gratitude to supporters for their outstanding generosity.
