Huddersfield Town’s game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday will celebrate the work of the Town Foundation in the charity’s first dedicated fixture since the start of the pandemic.

Fans and supporters are encouraged to learn more about the foundation through a range of activities on the day.

The Town Foundation aims to help everyone in Kirklees live happier, healthier lives and achieve their full potential.

The foundation, which marks its tenth anniversary in 2022, will unveil its new strategy later this year following a period of community consultation.

On the morning of Saturday’s fixture, Nick Barlow, who is best known for appearing on the Town Social podcast, will take part in a steps challenge inside the John Smith’s Stadium. Funds raised will benefit the foundation and two other charities.

As fans arrive at the stadium, the club’s brass band ‘Terrier Brass’ will play a medley of music based at the new fan zone. Town Foundation bucket collectors will be out too.

The Town Foundation funds healthy breakfasts at schools like this breakfast club at Rawthorpe Infants.

The Fans for Foodbanks initiative will be back in situ, with bins based next to the entrance to the KAL leisure centre and the players’ entrance. Please remember to bring your beans, pasta and other dried foods.

The Town players will warm up in T-shirts sponsored by Big Dog Workwear. These will explain how to text donate to the foundation. Post-match, the shirts will be signed by the players and auctioned.

At half-time, the foundation’s chief executive Siobhan Atkinson will join club ambassador Michael Hefele and match announcer Paul Ramsden pitch side to explain the work of the foundation.
