06 Mar BUSY FEBRUARY HALF TERM SEES YOUNG PEOPLE ENGAGE IN SPORT
February half term was a busy time for the Huddersfield Town Foundation, with close to 150 young people playing sport across three sites!
60 children aged between five and 11 played five days of football at Leeds Road Sports Complex, with 30 of the same age group playing three days at St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary Academy.
In addition, 18 young people signed up to the Foundation’s two-day multi-sport camp for those with a disability and/or special educational needs.
Finally, the Foundation worked with 40 children in year seven and eight at North Huddersfield Trust School. As part of the partnership, the students received a hot lunch provided by KSDL Catering.
Both football camps for primary school children were supported by, which funded places for children that receive free school meals.
On Tuesday 22 February, Town forward Josh Koroma took questions on a range of topics from the children via Zoom!
Club and Community Coordinator Michael Hefele then visited children at St John Fisher’s in Dewsbury, taking part in their small-sided games before doing a Q&A and signing autographs.
The Foundation will run similar provision in both weeks of the April school holidays, excluding bank holidays.
