Picturedrome raised £1,000 for the Keep It Up Campaign during Huddersfield Town’s Play-Off Semi-Final second-leg against Sheffield Wednesday.
The Holmfirth Box-Office screened Town’s crucial Play-Off match at Hillsborough for supporters and asked all fans who attended to donate money to the KIU campaign upon entry.
Huddersfield Town fans celebrated a memorable and dramatic 4-3 penalty shoot-out win against the Owls at the Music Venue after raising money for two great causes.
Following the success of the event, the Picturedrome is looking to put on more events like this in the future and will continue to support the campaign.
The Keep It Up campaign raises money for both Huddersfield Town’s Academy and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance; since its inception in 2009, it has raised over £1.4million.
Huddersfield Town’s Club Ambassador Andy Booth commented:
“It’s superb that local businesses are bringing fans together for such memorable events and raising money for the Keep It Up Campaign.
“I would like to thank everyone at the Picturedrome for raising £1,000 for the campaign, it’s a very generous donation.
“The money goes to two great causes, helping the next generation of footballer emerge from our Academy and to keep the two Yorkshire Air Ambulance helicopters in the skies.
“I’m sure every supporter who attended the screening had a night to remember, in what was a very special evening for us all.
“Hopefully we can have more memorable nights like that in the future as we look ahead to our exciting 2017/18 Premier League campaign.”
