28 Apr Local Businesses Have A Curry For Kids
Over 70 Huddersfield professionals got together over a curry on Monday 20 April to raise funds in aid of the Town Foundation.
Hosted by Sheards Accountancy, the event held at the Chilli Lounge raised a grand total of Â£550 for the charity, which aims to improve the quality of life for young people across Huddersfield and the West Yorkshire area through a variety of activities, primarily its hugely successful â€˜Early Kick-Offâ€™ breakfast clubs.
Mandy Taylor of the Town Foundation commented:Â
â€œThis is a fantastic start to our charity partnership with Sheards. The amount raised on the evening will ensure that over 1,000 healthy breakfasts – currently the equivalent of every child in all 16 breakfast clubs – can be served.â€
Carolyn Atkinson, Director at Sheards Accountancy, added:Â
â€œItâ€™s an honour to see so many individuals and businesses supporting both us and the Town Foundation.Â
â€œThe event was a great success and we are delighted that our first fundraising effort will have an immediate impact on the running of the Foundation.Â
â€œWeâ€™re looking forward to future fundraising initiatives and having a positive impact on both the Foundation and the families it supports.â€
