Today’s kids are tomorrows future.  We believe this and wanted to help Children’s Heart Surgery Fund by organising a Charity Cricket Tournament.  We received fantastic support from our friends and families and we are so grateful to everyone who supported us and helped to raise funds for this fantastic charity.

We decided to support the children’s heart surgery fund because it means a lot to quite a few of our customers and several close friends. Thank you to everyone who supported the event.

Ellie Thompson – Yorkshire Three Peaks

I decided to fund raise as my Son Jack age 7 is due his final heart operation, the Fontan in the next 18 weeks. He is my hero and amazes us everyday with how he copes with everything with a big smile on his face. Thanks to Leeds he is living the life he deserves.

Thank you to all of this week’s fantastic supporters. We couldn’t do what we do without you. #BecauseOfYou
