01 Feb Town Helps The Next Generation
A generous Huddersfield Town fan has helped to fund the Town Foundationâ€™s â€˜Early Kick-Offâ€™ breakfast clubs at his old school. Daron Hamilton of DAH Technology Ltd has donated Â£500 and also made a further pledge to provide essential kitchen equipment to enable the breakfast club at Netherhall Campus Junior School which was known as Rawthorpe when Daron was a pupil, to prosper. Daron joined Netherhallâ€™s â€˜Early Kick-Offâ€™ Breakfast Club co-ordinators Rachel Bridgeman and Teri Lamb â€“ who are pictured proudly sporting their new HTAFC aprons â€“ and the Town Foundationâ€™s Corporate Fundraising Officer Mandy Taylor to celebrate the donation. DAH Technology will also be one of the match day sponsors for the upcoming home game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday 9 March, which will be the official â€˜Town Foundationâ€™ fixture. Corporate Fundraising Officer Mandy Taylor commented: â€œThe Town Foundation is incredibly grateful to Daron for his support of the Netherhall Campus Early Kick-Off breakfast club. Itâ€™s a really nice touch when people can make a difference to their old school and Daronâ€™s contribution will be very helpful to the terrific staff at Netherhall in delivering the nutritious breakfasts to pupils. â€œThis donation is the latest example of the support that the Foundation is garnering from our local community; itâ€™s great to see local people are embracing the vital work we undertake in such a fashion. â€œIf anyone else wants to support a specific breakfast club that means something to them, or make a general donation to the Foundation, Iâ€™d urge them to get in touch.â€ The first official project of the Foundation, the â€˜Early Kick-Offâ€™ Breakfast Club, has already launched across the region. The Foundation has joined forces with several organisations such as Total Foodservice, Kirklees College, Kirklees Council, Catererâ€™s Choice, Stafflex and Kids Premiership to supply schools in the football clubâ€™s heartland with a free breakfast and NVQ level food hygiene training support. â€˜Early Kick-Offâ€™ aims to provide thousands of free breakfasts so that an initial five schools can feed their pupils every morning â€“ completely free of charge. This equates to over 50,000 free breakfasts for local youngsters in our region â€“ and that number will grow if the Foundation receives further donations.
