Through Town’s School Partnership scheme
Huddersfield Town striker Alan Lee visited School Partner Meltham Primary School last week to present them with their cash back cheque.
Meltham received £115 from Town’s School Partnership scheme after they sold tickets to school children for the Terriers’ ‘School Focus’ themed match against Bolton.
In total, £2,470 was given back to schools involved in the scheme who had sold match tickets. Meltham earned a visit from Alan and Club Ambassador Andy Booth having sold the most tickets on a pro rata basis.
Alan also distributed flyers for Town’s upcoming ‘Schools Focus’ match against Cardiff on 9 February.
The School Partnership scheme provides schools with support sessions, sports equipment and coaching days free of charge courtesy of the Club’s Football in the Community department.
Involvement in the scheme is totally free of charge to any school who wants to become an official Huddersfield Town Partner School. The scheme has five tiers of commitment which means schools can participate at any level they desire.
The aim of the partnership is to formalise all 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.
