Merrion's early gift for Toby
The Merrion Centre added a little sparkle to a poorly little boy's Christmas last night when it switched on its lights.
Edward Ziff, of Town Centre Securities which owns the Merrion Centre, presented four-year-old Leeds United fan Toby Nye with a cheque for £1,000 to put towards expensive treatment, not available on the NHS, for high risk neuroblastoma.
Leeds United fans, players and staff have recently raised more than £150,000 for the youngster as part of their One Day for Toby fundraiser.
The YEP reported how players and club staff showed their support by donating their salaries for the day as did workers from club parent company Aser and the Leeds United Foundation.
