Bucket collection to take place ahead of Leicester City game

- Huddersfield Hospital Radio provide commentary for blind and visually impaired fans
- Bucket collection will be at the home game against Leicester City
- Money helps the station continue its service

Huddersfield Town will help raise funds for Huddersfield Hospital Radio which provides match commentary for blind and visually impaired supporters on home match days.

Volunteers from the charity will hold a bucket collection at the John Smith’s Stadium ahead of the Club’s next home game against Leicester City on Saturday 6 April 2019.

Funds raised will help the station to continue its service which includes match commentary as well as 24 hour a day music service programmes for patients on the wards.

David Falkingham, Chairman at Huddersfield Hospital Radio commented:

“We have been broadcasting football commentaries since 1953 from the Leeds Road ground, and now volunteers run the station from a basement in the HRI.

"Our match commentaries are relayed to supporters in the John Smiths Stadium who are blind or visually impaired, and we see this as a very important part of our work.

"We are very grateful for supporters contributions to enable us to continue to do this.”

If any blind or visual impaired supporters would like to request a headset on match days to listen to the match commentary, please contact our Disabled Liaison Officer Sue Farrell on 01484 960 606 and select option 5, or email
