People can win a signed and framed Huddersfield Town football shirt … for a fiver.

The current squad has signed the shirt as a fundraiser for Huddersfield-based charity Fresh Futures which supports disadvantaged children, young people and their families across Kirklees.

To buy a ticket go to the charity’s reception at Brian Jackson House on New North Parade in Huddersfield town centre or email

The winning ticket will be drawn at 10am on Wednesday May 22.

Fresh Futures has its roots back to 1974 when the National Children’s Centre was set up by visionary educationalist Brian Jackson and has been helping families ever since. It later became the Yorkshire Children’s Centre and in January 2024 rebranded as Fresh Futures.

The charity now focuses on four key areas – education, health and wellbeing, employability and healthy relationships.

Brian Jackson colleges in Huddersfield and Heckmondwike provide education for up to 80 young people aged 13 to 16 who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties and have been permanently excluded or are at risk of exclusion from mainstream schools.

The charity also works with some of the most disadvantaged people in Kirklees to try to get them into training or work.

Fresh Futures promotes healthy relationships at its child contact centres supporting parents, grandparents or other family members who are no longer living with their children or there has been a breakdown in family relationships.
