Dads are in for a wonderful Father’s Day treat at Lewis & Cooper with the launch of a special MFC Foundation Gift Box packed with luxury goodies.

Boro legends Jim Platt and Alan Peacock will be joined by former Premier League referee Jeff Winter and cuddly club mascot Roary the Lion to showcase this lovely present at Lewis & Cooper’s Northallerton store on Friday May 24 (1pm).

They’ll also be celebrating an exciting new partnership with MFC Foundation, Boro’s charity arm, which is famous for its fantastic community work across Teesside.

The Middlesbrough Gift Box features everything a dad could want on Father’s Day (Sunday, June 16) – two bottles of award-winning Castle Bolton Bitter, a box of delicious Farmhouse chilli and garlic savoury biscuits, a pack of Snaffling Pig Pork Cracklingt and two jars of popular L&C own-brand delights, Red Onion Marmalade and Caramelised Onion Chutney.

It’s on sale now at £24.99. And £2 from every sale will be donated to MFC Foundation to support their community programme.

Customers are invited to meet Jim, Alan, Jeff and Roary at the Northallerton store, where there will also be a raffle to win a souvenir match shirt signed by the Boro stars AND a signed MFC FOOTBALL.

And there’ll be a chance to enjoy 10% discounts on two other new Father’s Day presents, the Beer and Snacks Hamper (now £17.99) and the Ultimate Malbec Gift Set (now £17.09).

L&C Sales and Marketing Manager Nicola McIntosh says: “As a business that serves the local community, this is our way of giving something back via the fantastic MFC Foundation, which does so much for the people of Teesside. We are very proud to give the Foundation our support.”

Foundation Business Development Manager Ann-Marie Anderson adds: “The donations we receive from sales of the Father’s Day Gift Box will really help us to improve the life chances of young people and adults across Teesside.” “We work in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Teesside and every penny helps us to make a difference. We are very excited to partner with Lewis & Cooper and introduce their lovely products to a new audience.”

The MFC Gift Box will also be on sale at the Middlesbrough FC club store at the Riverside Stadium and online at and
