Charity begins at home

Charitable football club

……and goes to Brighton, Old Trafford and further afield.  I know many embark on charitable feats and link to local communities, as indeed they should.  One Club I am currently associated with embodies all that is good with such an approach.  Huddersfield Town.

I choose to highlight last season’s bike ride by supporters to an away game in Brighton and their trip to the play off final in Manchester. 

In the former, 170 cyclists rode 270 miles, raising more than £250,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Club’s Academy.  Even David Cameron applauded the result. This on the back of a similar previous year’s adventure to Southend (A). 

More recently I was one of several businesses that made a donation so that 800 under-privileged children received free tickets and transport to watch Huddersfield in the npower League One play-off final at Old Trafford. 

Both the successes have led to the Club establishing a Foundation with my input.
