Peter STIX Lockwood
This sculpture depicts the life and soul of Peter STIX Lockwood. He is one of Leeds United's all time unsung heroes and winner of two awards.
🚨THIS SCULPTURE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY OR COLLECTION ON DECEMBER AND BEFORE CHRISTMAS🚨
In 2018, Stix was named as the recipient of the 'BOBBY COLLINS AWARD' (which is the trophy STIX is holding in his left hand) for Leeds United which is given to an unsung member of staff who has gone above and beyond at the club.
His involvement with Leeds United, spans over 63 years! The last photo in the gallery shows STIX (bottom right) at just 8 years old, helping to thaw out the pitch so the match could be played the following day.
Stix has assisted in an immeasurable number of Leeds United fans' memories over the years, which has involved different situations – from Match Days and ‘Leeds on the Road’ events, to celebrations, bereavements and ill health. Assisting fans at the best and sometimes most difficult times of their lives.
Stix has stated, “The fans are the heartbeat of Our Club.” Even Marcelo Bielsa himself called Stix "The Bridge between the Club and the supporters."
This special Leeds United Memorabilia Sculpture has been cast in resin, with each one being individually painted. Inside his shoes, there are magnets that allow you to remove him from the base. In addition, there is a key hole on the back of the base so it can be hung on a wall, next to or above the sculpture.
AVAILABLE IN GOLD AND MADE FOR INDOOR USE ONLY.
DELIVERY WILL BE IN DECEMBER 2023

A PORTION OF EACH STATUE SALE WILL HELP FUND STIX'S LEGAL FEES AND ONGOING COURT CASE. ADDITIONALLY IT WILL HELP TO CEMENT HIS LEGACY WITH LUFC.
Stix has helped a number of charities, organisations and individuals/families that Stix has helped since he took up this role is literally unquantifiable but doubtless will be in their thousands – examples include Martin House Hospice, Candle lighters, St Gemma’s Hospice, St George’s Crypt, The Salvation Army, The Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund (after the death of Leeds United Physio Bruce Craven to the disease), Spread Joy with Abi and recently Robert Hiscoe, who is raising money for the NHS. He also helps and supports Leeds United Supporters groups and clubs such as Marching Out Together, Leeds United Disabled Organisation (LUDO), as well as numerous overseas supporter’s clubs – particularly those in Scandinavia, Ireland and Malta, to name but a few.
In his role he used to maintain a vital link between LUFC and those in the local, national and international community who are disadvantaged, vulnerable, ill, recovering and unfortunately the very serious – and their families – and fosters links that bring long-remembered experiences of joy and comfort to people who find themselves in heart-breaking and devastating situations. He arranges visits to hospitals (including an annual Christmas visit to poorly children), as well as many other often unpublicised visits to the local Community and he accompanies the players who go. In addition, he accompanies players on school visits and so whilst a lot of his work is around supporting those in need, difficulty, grief, there is also an element of helping to inspire the next generation by making their local footballing heroes accessible to them within the Community. Even during the current health crisis, he has continued to do the best he can to help and support those who need it, within the restrictions. He is tireless in maintaining and promoting that sense of the ‘LUFC Family’, which can be either comforting, uplifting or motivating depending on the individual circumstances of those he deals with, and he genuinely has no concept of how important the work he does is, and just what it means to the people who contact him sometimes in the most difficult moments of their lives.
