By KLTV Newsdesk –
The Huddersfield Town Foundation has announced its new Regular Giving Scheme, giving people the option to donate to its charitable work across Kirklees.
Contributions will be used to maintain many of the foundation’s key projects including their successful Breakfast Club programme.
People wishing to contribute will be able to make regular donations via direct debit, administered online via Virgin Money Giving.
The minimum amount to give is £1 a month, though the foundation suggests a contribution of £5 a month, which they say will enable them to provide three weeks worth of breakfast club meals for a single child.
The foundation has plans to keep givers up to date via a new regular newsletter, and recurring participants of the scheme will be entered into prize draws with a chance to win Huddersfield Town-related prizes.
Those wishing to set up a monthly contribution can do so on the Virgin Money Giving website.
One-off contributions can also be made via text via the details in the graphic below:
All money donated will go directly into the Foundation’s unrestricted funding pot, meaning it will be used to support a range of community projects from Breakfast clubs to Sporting Memories to Children in Care.

Speaking in an open letter about the scheme, Ann Hough, the Town Foundation’s Chair of Trustees, said: “This is an exciting time for the Huddersfield Town Foundation, the Club’s official charity, with more of our in-person delivery returning weekly throughout Kirklees.
“It’s been great to see so many happy faces at our sessions based at Leeds Road Sports Complex, as well as in our partner primary and secondary schools.
“I know our excellent team of staff are looking forward to restarting more sessions and events in the coming weeks and months.
“Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation has been able to adapt its delivery to still meet the needs of the local community.
“We have also introduced two new programmes over recent months, one of which supports care leavers and the other a weight management programme for men aged 40+.
“I would personally like to thank you on behalf of the Town Foundation’s trustees for your unwavering support, which has always been evident since the Foundation’s formation but has reached an extra level in the past 12 months.
“I look forward to seeing you back at the John Smith’s Stadium and at Town Foundation events, all being well, in the 2021/22 season.
