Group recognised for going ‘above and beyond’ in 2019/20
- 2019/20 ‘Terriers Together’ award handed out by the Club
- Huddersfield Town Disabled Supporters Club is the winner
- Group recognised for commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion
The Huddersfield Town Disabled Supporters’ Club is the recipient of the ‘Terriers Together’ award at the conclusion of the 2019/20 season!
This award, which would have been handed out at the end-of-season Annual Awards ceremony, recognises the commitment of individuals and groups that have gone above and beyond to advocate for equality, diversity and inclusion.
The award winners were chosen by the Club’s Equality Working Group; an internal group of staff whose purpose is to raise the profile of equality throughout the organisation by celebrating diversity and fostering an inclusive environment for all.
Huddersfield Town Disabled Supporters Club (HTDSC) work hard to promote accessibility and inclusion, and provide a social environment, for disabled supporters and their families to meet and talk about all things Town.
Huddersfield Town’s Supporter Services Manager Robyn Kennerdale commented:
“We are delighted that the Huddersfield Town Disabled Supporters Club can be recognised for all they do to advise us on improvements and feedback on various topics in relation to access and facilities.
“They do a wonderful job in running their monthly meetings and creating a supportive network for our disabled fans and we were happy to give them the Terriers Together accolade at the end of the season.
“Thank you to Chair Dave Heatherill for the continued support they offer the Club.”
Chair of the HTDSC, Dave Heatherill, pictured above in early March 2020 with Kevin Ryan and Club Ambassador Andy Booth, added:
“Everybody at the Disabled Supporters Club is thrilled to have this award presented to us for our work in making sure everyone has access to the Club, and we all hope that the group continues to grow bigger and better.”
The 2018/19 winner of the Terriers Together Award was the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association, who brought the ‘Women at the Game’ and ‘On the Ball’ campaigns to the Club, and work with the Town Foundation on the Fans for Foodbank initiative, as well as with Huddersfield Town Women.
