Players and manager meet fundraisers
Huddersfield Town held its fourth charity signing day of the season yesterday to give local charities the chance to meet the first team squad and get their official merchandise signed in person for use in fundraising.
Representatives of the Joseph Salmon Trust, Richard Ford Trust, Phoenix Forces Support and Leonard Cheshire Disability were joined by other individuals raising funds for causes including Cystic Fibrosis and Breast Cancer care at the Club’s Canalside training facility.
Huddersfield Town Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan commented: “It’s great to be able to help some really worthwhile causes through our signing days, and the latest one was the best attended yet. As a Club we are committed to making a difference by helping local charities, and we hope everyone who attended raise a lot of funds from the signed merchandise and enjoyed meeting the players.”
