Huddersfield Town Foundation is gearing up for its most anticipated event of the year, Fizz Friday.

This fun-filled afternoon of entertainment, camaraderie and community spirit promises an unforgettable experience that combines charity, joy and local engagement in the run-up to Christmas.

On Friday November 24, the event will take place at the John Smith’s Stadium. Guiding guests through the day’s proceedings is award-winning TV presenter and journalist, Charlotte Leeming. Her charismatic presence and energy are sure to add an extra layer of excitement to the event.

With doors opening at 10.30am, guests will have the chance to explore the array of pop-up shops hosted by local businesses. From the unique gift haven of Hudson Belle to the refreshing delights of Magic Rock Lager, The Body Shop’s skincare indulgence, and the irresistible offerings of The Yorkshire Chocolate Co there will be plenty of choices for Christmas shopping. 

For entertainment, the Motownella’s, a sensational trio, will transport people back in time with their Motown melodies and dazzling choreography.

Huddersfield magician Luke Lenihan, renowned for his spellbinding tricks showcased on Britain’s Got Talent, will leave guests awe-struck with his jaw-dropping illusions. And Spin 36TY Booth have generously donated their services to capture the festivities. 

Guests will also be able to hear directly from the people who have benefited from the foundation’s invaluable work first hand, as beneficiaries and dedicated staff share their personal journeys, demonstrating the profound difference contributions make in the community.

During the sit-down lunch, guests will enjoy the company of like-minded individuals who are equally committed to fostering positive change. There will also be fundraising games, raffle prizes and a silent auction.

Local businesses have a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on the community by sponsoring this exceptional event, aligning their brands with a worthy cause and supporting the continued efforts of the Huddersfield Town Foundation.

Siobhan Atkinson, CEO of the foundation, said: “I’m delighted that we can once again host Fizz Friday, a fantastic event in our fundraising calendar.

“It allows people to enjoy a beautiful meal and entertainment while having the opportunity to learn first hand about the work that we carry out in the community.

“The funds that we raise directly go to helping the foundation carry on projects such as our Breakfast Clubs which have now been delivered for over 10 years.

“The difficulty comes with increasing numbers of young people in Kirklees needing our help and we really want to do more. I’m confident that guests attending will have a brilliant time while giving generously.

“Yorkshire people are so supportive of genuine charitable causes and care about their own. I can’t wait to have the sparkle of the event knowing those attending will have had a great time while also doing something that helps those in need.”

Tickets are now available, priced at £65 per person. For those seeking an unforgettable group experience, an exclusive table for 10 can be reserved for £650. To secure your spot, contact Paula Earnshaw at
