The overall aim of the Huddersfield Town Foundation is simple – to help improve the quality of life for young people across Huddersfield and the West Yorkshire area.

The Town Foundation was officially launched in July 2012 by its brainchild, Huddersfield Town Chairman, Dean Hoyle. The launch of the Foundation followed previous initiatives by the club designed to benefit youngsters across the community.
Hoyle, backed by local businesses and individuals alike, had already taken a cumulative total of almost 2,000 local children to the Club’s two Play-Off Final games at Manchester’s Old Trafford in May 2011, and the iconic Wembley Stadium in May 2012, to watch Huddersfield Town in action on the big stage.
These trips provided a unique opportunity for the children, their siblings and families to enjoy a free of charge, rare treat, which many seldom have the chance to enjoy. The days out offered an experience and memories, which wouldn’t have been possible without the financial backing raised through initiative such as a bike ride from Huddersfield to Wembley in the week leading up to the 2012 game.
