Club holds charity signing day at Canalside
Huddersfield Town players were busy signing merchandise on Tuesday afternoon as the Club held its first ever charity signing day at Canalside.
Town gave local registered charities the opportunity to obtain discount on merchandise in the Stadium Superstore and then have those items signed by the first team players. The signed merchandise will then be used in auctions and raffles.
Representatives from the following charities attended: Leonard Cheshire Disability, Shabang Slaithwaite, Yorkshire Kidney Research Fund, Prince’s Trust.
Huddersfield Town Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented: “Huddersfield Town is committed to helping local charities where possible, therefore we were happy to welcome the charities and their supporters to Canalside on Tuesday afternoon for the first ever charity signing event. We hope they raise a lot of funds from the merchandise and enjoyed meeting the players.”
Town’s next charity signing day is expected to be in February, 2013.
