Shirts to be signed and auctioned off to raise funds
- Town’s First Team to wear the Town Foundation logo against Sheffield Wednesday
- Help raise money for the Foundation’s 2020 Christmas Appeal
- Shirts to be auctioned alongside video message for winner
Huddersfield Town will proudly wear the logo of its registered charity, the Town Foundation, on its shirts for Tuesday night’s Sky Bet Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday!
The Town Foundation will sponsor the shirt for the game against the Owls to raise vital funds for their 2020 Christmas Appeal, which has raised more than £7,000 thus far!
2020 has been a tough year for the Foundation in terms of fundraising, with many key events being cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite this, the team have continued to support the vulnerable of all ages across Kirklees, adapting its delivery to become more digital and offering their services wherever needed.
After the match, the shirt of every outfield player in the match day squad will be signed by their respective player and auctioned online.
In addition to the shirt the successful bidder will also receive a personalised video message from that player, making this a fantastic and unique Christmas present!
More details on the shirt auction will be published on htafc.com in due course.
On the news, Siobhan Atkinson, Chief Executive of the Town Foundation, commented:
“We’re delighted to have been given the chance to showcase the Town Foundation at Huddersfield Town’s match against Sheffield Wednesday!
"We'd like to thank Huddersfield Town Chairman Phil Hodgkinson for providing us with this opportunity as soon as the details of the innovative shirt sponsorship approach were released. This is the perfect match for us to gain more exposure, which will do wonders for our Christmas Appeal and help so many people in our area during this vital time.
“Our work uses the power of the Huddersfield Town brand to inspire and motivate participants, making a huge difference to thousands of lives every year.
“The generosity of Town supporters this year has been overwhelming and we hope that this can continue with the auction!”
Throughout the season the Town Foundation is also featuring on Town’s away shirts in rotation with two other fantastic local charities – The Kirkwood and Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Click here to find out more.
