Huddersfield Town’s first team squad will be at Halifax Minster in December to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The club will hold their annual Christmas celebration at the Minster on Tuesday 11 December in aid of the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign.

So far over £710,000 has been raised for the charity.

The event has traditionally been held in Wakefield, but has moved to Halifax this year because of renovation work at Wakefield Cathedral.

HTAFC Supporter Partnerships Manager Robyn Deegan said: “The Christmas Celebration is one of those events which is guaranteed to get people in the festive spirit – and even better it raises funds for two very worthwhile causes in the process.

“We are looking forward to holding the event at a different venue this year, we’ve got lots of fans in Halifax, Brighouse and the surrounding areas and we hope to see as many of them at the Minster on Tuesday 11 December as possible.”

The night will feature performances from Silcoates Junior School choir and Royds Hall School choir, as well as readings from the Huddersfield Town players and staff.

Recommended donation per entry is £6 adults, £4 seniors and £3 juniors, available from both Huddersfield Town club shops and ticket office or online at www.htafcmegastore.com. Alternatively you can call 01484 484123 for more information.

All proceeds go to the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign which benefits the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity and the Huddersfield Town Academy.
