"The last few years an invisible killer has ravaged our community," Adonis, of The Roaring Peacock podcast, said.

"The one force that stood against it was the NHS. Leeds United podcasts and supporters groups will come together to stage a 24 hour livestream to fundraise for NHS Charities Together.

"We want to give back to a group who have given everything for us."

The NHS Charities Together consist of 241 member charities based in hospital, ambulance trusts, mental health trusts, community health trusts and health boards across the UK.

From supporting research and development, to brightening up hospital environments, to donating state-of-the-art technologies and equipment, the charities raise funds and mobilise volunteers and help look after the NHS staff who look after us.

NHS Charities Together touch lives and make a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.
