The front man of Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs and coach on ‘The Voice UK’ joined the Foundation who help over 50,000 people a year including children, young people, adults, disabled, at-risk, the unemployed and elderly across Yorkshire.
Ricky Wilson, Leeds United Foundation Ambassador, said: “I'm absolutely thrilled to become an Ambassador for the Leeds United Foundation, a charity that does so much for the Leeds and Yorkshire community. “I may not be able to name the 1968 winning squad like some of the Kaisers, but that doesn't stop me from being genuinely proud of my Yorkshire roots. Supporting the Foundation’s work with the disabled, those with dementia, the unemployed, underprivileged children and the elderly is something I am incredibly proud to do. “It’s vital that we listen to and help our communities wherever we can and we will do as much as we can to help the Leeds United Foundation. There are some really exciting plans for the charity and it’s a real pleasure to help them out.” Wilson was recently voted one of London’s most influential people of 2015 in the London Evening Standard.
