New partnership kicks-off at Bristol City game

Huddersfield Town will help to spread the important and topical message of fire safety at the upcoming npower Championship clash at home to Bristol City on Saturday 3 November thanks to a new partnership with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS).

The game, which will be played just two days before Bonfire Night, will be dedicated to spreading the message of fire safety in our community and is part of a larger partnership throughout the year.

To launch the partnership, the team from Huddersfield Fire Station – led by District Commander Keith Robinson – visited the Stadium and met Town star Alan Lee as well as Club Ambassador Andy Booth!

“We’re delighted to have secured this new partnership with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service ahead of Bonfire Night as we feel we can play a big part in spreading a very important message across the community,” Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis explained today.

“I hope everyone really embraces the message at the Bristol City game and helps us to keep our region – particularly our youngsters – safe at one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year.”

Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Brighouse will have Huddersfield Town branded fire engines as part of the new partnership and Town’s Stadium Superstore will soon stock the ‘Red Hot Dates’ calendar, which raises money for the Fire Fighters Charity, The Laila Milly Foundation and Town’s Charity Partner the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Sean continued: “The WYFRS are heroes in our region because of the life-saving work they undertake and it will be a source of immense pride for the Club that our crest will be displayed on their fire engines.”

District Commander Keith Robinson added: 

“This is an important partnership for both Huddersfield Town and WYFRS, in spreading the safety message across the whole of Kirklees and Calderdale. Huddersfield Town is one of the highest performing teams within Yorkshire and with their success and high profile of the Fire and Rescue Service we have an ideal partnership which will benefit the whole community. 

“The game on 3 November is important for us, both on and off the field, and by highlighting the up and coming Bonfire period and the associated dangers we will ensure that our fans are safe.

“I am very excited about the partnership and being given this opportunity only reinforces our commitment to the people of Huddersfield and Calderdale. May I wish Town every success in the coming season and the people of Kirklees a safe and enjoyable bonfire period.”
