Club legend joins supporters on walk
You can join Town legend Andy Booth on Huddersfield Town and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s annual ‘Walk for Pounds’ event, sponsored by club partner Thornhill Dental Surgery!
Andy recently visited YAA’s Air Support Unit at Nostell Priory in Wakefield - the starting point of the Walk - to have a look around and meet YAA’s Clinical Operations Manager Pete Vallance (pictured).
Boothy commented: “Since the KIU campaign started in 2009 I have always taken part in the bike rides and supported wherever I can, but one event I’ve never done is Walk for Pounds! It will be a big challenge for me to walk 19 miles but I’m really looking forward to joining other Town fans and staff for what is sure to be a great day. We’ve seen first-hand how important the YAA’s work is in the last few days and that’s a big motivation for me to take part to raise funds for the charity and our Academy- I’d urge Town fans to sign up and join me!”
The 19 mile walk will set off from Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s airbase at Nostell Air Support Unit in Wakefield to the John Smith’s Stadium in time for the home game against Fulham on Saturday 21 March 2015.
Entrants will also take part in a lap of honour on arrival at the Stadium prior to kick-off!
This will be the Club’s fourth Walk for Pounds event in aid of the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign, with the previous three events raising an amazing £60,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and HTAFC Academy.
Funds raised by the walkers will go towards maintaining the YAA’s two lifesaving helicopters as well as assisting the HTAFC Academy.
The event entry fee is £15 per person which includes coach transport from PPG Canalside to Nostell Priory to begin the walk kindly provided by Stotts Coaches, breakfast pre-walk, a snack and refreshment as well as an ‘I completed the Walk’ t-shirt.
The minimum age to take part in the Walk is 13 and participants aged 13-15 must be supervised by an adult aged 18+.
