As July comes to a close, here is a review of the great community work that has been delivered by the Huddersfield Town Foundation in the past month.
July began with pupils from Colne Valley High School, who are representing Town in this year’s Premier League Inspires Challenge, going up to the Riverside Stadium to present to seven other Club’s Charitable Organisations about their social-action project.
Their project is around combating plastic and clothing waste and their idea is to turn out-of-favour football shirts into reusable tote bags – CLICK HERE to read more on the project.
The Foundation and Terry the Terrier visited Dalton Junior, Infant, and Nursery School early into the month to present the school with a Town home shirt that was signed by the squad to thank them for raising much-needed funds throughout the year for the charity.
Terry continued to be a busy terrier during July as he and the Foundation visited Emley First School, St John’s School, Healey JIN School, and Hillside Primary School as part of the Premier League Primary Stars programme’s Girls’ Football Festival Days in the lead up to the 2023 Women’s World Cup.
The sessions were designed to show the importance of female participation in football, with guest speakers from professional female footballers talking to the children about their upbringing and the struggles in their career. A review of the package can be found here.
B Team players Charles Ondo and Conor Falls visited the Foundation’s ‘TURN OUT KICK-OFF’ session at Leeds Road Sports Complex.
Ondo and Falls told their story of moving to England at an early age to a group of refugees and care leavers that were invested and inspired by what they had to say before the group had a light kickaround to close the session – more details can be found here.
The highlight of the month was the Town’s Official Charity's involvement in the Club’s launch of the Third Kit!
Pupils from the Town Foundation’s music project at North Huddersfield Trust School earned the opportunity to feature in the launch of the Club’s third kit, taking part in the photoshoot and providing the soundtrack for the video.

July ended with a celebration as students Josh Smith and Lee Fawcett became the Foundation’s first-ever graduates from their University of South Wales BSc Community Football Coaching and Administration course that is delivered in Huddersfield.
