Walk for Pounds lap of honour at 2.30pm

Town fans are encouraged to get to the John Smith’s Stadium earlier than usual for Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship game against Fulham to welcome home their fellow supporters taking part in ‘Walk for Pounds’!

An amazing 190 people – including Town’s Chairman Dean Hoyle, Academy Manager Mark Lillis and Club Ambassador Andy Booth – have signed up to take part in the 19 mile walk, which will set off from Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s airbase at Nostell Air Support Unit in Wakefield and finish at the John Smith’s Stadium. 

The lap of honour will start at the John Smith's Stadium at 2.30pm.

The event, which is sponsored by club partner Thornhill Dental Surgery, raises funds that will go towards maintaining the YAA’s two lifesaving helicopters as well as assisting the HTAFC Academy.

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. 

If you’d like to donate towards the walk or to the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign in general, you can text KIUP99 £5 (or any other amount) to 70070.
