The Huddersfield Town Foundation has received £1,000 in funding from the Football Association.

Every season, the FA makes a distribution of money raised specifically from the Community Shield match attendance.

The registered charity of each of the 124 teams competing in the FA Cup is then invited to apply for a grant of up to £1,000. The Town Foundation was successful and will use the money to support its Breakfast Club programme.

Ahead of the club’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Queens Park Rangers, interim chief executive Dean Hoyle, who co-founded the Town Foundation in 2012 with his wife Janet, presented a cheque to Huddersfield Town Foundation fundraising executive Lisa Bottomley.

Breakfast Club at Rawthorpe Infant School

Since 2012, the Breakfast Club programme has gone from strength to strength and now operates in 41 local schools.

It is funded entirely through fundraising and grants like this one from the FA, ensuring that children start their school day the right way.

The total number of breakfasts served in the 10 years has now passed two million and will continue to grow.
