Help Town and the YAA this Christmas

Having a Christmas clearout? Instead of throwing away any old, unwanted clothing or footwear, why not place it in a yellow ‘Keep It Up’ recycling bank and help the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and the Huddersfield Town Academy at the same time!

The distinctive blue, white and yellow recycling banks can be found at various locations around Huddersfield (see below) and will accept any type of clothing and footwear as well as textiles such as bedding, towels and cushion covers.

Proceeds go to the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign which raises funds for both the HTAFC Academy and YAA charity, with clothing recycling already contributing over £30,000 to the campaign since the start of the 2009/10 season.

If you would like to organise a shoe or clothing collection at your workplace or school, please email and the Club will arrange to supply you with special collection bags which can then be put in one of the banks.

Alternatively if you plan on collecting over twenty bags full, we’ll arrange for YAA’s recycling partner Bag It Up to come and collect them from your site.

The ‘Keep It Up’ recycling bank locations are:
