Christmas Celebration is a huge success
Halifax Minster was turned blue and white at last night’s fourth annual Christmas Celebration, as more than 450 people packed the church in support of the event!
The concert saw the Huddersfield Town first team, Development squad and coaching staff in attendance as well as representatives from the Academy and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Huddersfield Town first team player and fans favourite Alan Lee read ‘The Shepherd and the Angels’, and Academy under-16 player Ben Ireland also delivered a reading.
The crowd were kept entertained by outstanding vocal performances from Silcoates junior school whose rendition of ‘Wise Men’ got everyone clapping along, and Royds Hall high school who also had a team of contemporary dancers to accompany their fantastic choir.
Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented:
“Last night’s Christmas Celebration was another fantastic event, which was very well attended.
“On behalf of everyone at the Club I would like to thank all who attended and performed to make last night such a success, and for helping us to near our target of £1 million for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.”
All proceeds from the evening will go towards supporting the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, the Club’s official charity partnership with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, for which each 50p in the pound donated goes towards Town’s Academy, and 50p to YAA.
