Town mascot rewards kids for Olympic efforts
Town mascot ‘Terry the Terrier’ was out and about in local schools last week to deliver medals to the winners of Football in the Community’s recent Olympic events.
Kids from schools such as Shepley First School took part in the Olympic themed fun days over the last two weeks, which featured a variety of activities such as a throwing challenge; shooting through the target ring; athleticism drills and a penalty shootout.
Huddersfield Town’s Community Manager Rob Day commented:
“The kids really enjoyed taking part in the fun days and having visited all the schools again, it’s fair to say they are in the Olympic spirit now!
“It was great to see how excited the kids were when Terry turned up at their school; everyone seemed to want a picture with him and they were thrilled to get their medals.
“It’s important to keep kids fit and healthy and we’re delighted our fun days could play a small part in this.”
Shepley First School are one of a large number of schools signed up to the Club's School Partnership scheme; if you would like to get involved or for more information, click HERE.
The aim of Town's school partnership is to formalise the offerings Huddersfield Town currently make to schools in one service through the Club, FITC and support sessions. It will also provide schools with assistance during the recession through 'cashback' schemes, student rewards, player visits and school kits provided by Huddersfield Town.
