Huddersfield Town Foundation hold another successful Wear Blue and White Day
- People in Kirklees partake in Town Foundation’s Wear Blue and White Day
- Money raised towards the Breakfast Clubs
- Schools and Businesses got involved in the fundraiser
On Friday 26 January, many people got involved in the Huddersfield Town Foundation’s Wear Blue and White Day, raising vital funds to help towards the delivery of the Breakfast Clubs.
Activations for Wear Blue and White Day started in the week leading up to the event, with Hartley’s Bakers and Confectioners selling special Foundation cupcakes and Terrier biscuits, and donating the proceeds to the Breakfast Clubs.
GIFT in Lindley also had a small competition to raise funds, with the winner being able to win a personalised handmade football card.
Participants from the Town Foundation’s programmes have already executed activations in the buildup to the day, with their Walking Football and Seated Exercise groups raising over £260 between them.
Terry the Terrier had a very busy Wear Blue and White Day, as he visited several of the 39 confirmed schools involved in the day, starting at Netherhall Learning Centre, where he visited their Infant and Junior schools and presented the winner of their raffle of a Huddersfield Town ball signed by the First Team.
Dalton School Junior, Infant, and Nursery school was where Terry next headed, and he was swarmed by children for high fives and cuddles whilst walking through the school to say thank you for their support in putting on a non-uniform day to raise money.
Terry then visited Christ Church CE Academy, who had raised £130.82 in one of their first fundraisers for the Foundation, before he ended the day at Spring Grove School, where he got involved in an assembly delivered as part of their Premier League Primary Stars package.
Other schools got involved in raising money through non-uniform days, such as Moldgreen Community Primary School, Woodside Green Primary School, Cumberworth CE (A) First School, Mount Pleasant Primary School, and Healey Junior, Infant, and Nursery School, who also sold badges and cupcakes.
Fired Up Corporation wore blue and white to work, as well as having a bake sale to donate profits to Town’s Foundation.
It was fantastic to see Town fans sporting their colours with pride, as well as backing the Foundation with their generous donations.
Activations continued into the weekend, with the launch of the Women’s small-sided league through the Active Through Football programme, who incorporated the fundraiser with the inauguration.
The Foundation will reveal a total of how much has been raised on Wear Blue and White Day once all donations have been collected.
