£1,875 DONATED TO BRITISH LEGION

3 January 2013

Special Blackburn shirts raise fantastic amount

A cheque for £1,875.33 was presented to the Royal British Legion at Town’s Yorkshire derby at home to Sheffield Wednesday courtesy of the special shirts worn against Blackburn back in November.

The Club’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis presented Richard Brook and Sara Walker from the Royal British Legion charity with a cheque for the money during the half-time interval, raised from the sale of the special poppy shirts worn by the players against Rovers earlier this season.

Proceeds from the shirt auction went to the Royal British Legion – the charity that provides welfare, comradeship, representation and remembrance for the Armed Forces Community – whereas a bucket collection on the evening raised another £2,253.15 for the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolent Trust – click HERE for full info! 
    
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:
 
“On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank everyone who bid for one of the special match-worn shirts for their generosity in raising this amount for the Royal British Legion.
 
“We’ve had some tremendous feedback on the game and how it was right to ‘do the right thing’ and get behind the Yorkshire Regiment Benevolent Trust and the Royal British Legion at the game and together our fans, as well as the Blackburn fans present on the evening, have raised over £4,000 for two amazing charities. 
 
“Hopefully this money can go some way to supporting those involved with our Armed Forces who need financial help.”
