Ridley & Hall Part with their Teddies to Support the Huddersfield Town Foundation
Huddersfield Town foundation is a registered charity which is making a difference to the lives of children and young people in our community.
As part of our work within the community, Ridley & Hall approached the charity earlier this month to find out what events we as a firm could take part in.
One forthcoming event was a Twenty20 cricket match held at Armitage Bridge on Sunday 21st July 2013 and they were collecting teddy bears to be used on the tombola stall.
As a loyal Town fan and keen charity supporter, Laura Dandridge, Administrative Assistant, co-ordinated the collection at Ridley & Hall. As a firm, we managed to collect a variety of teddy bears which are pictured below. The event itself was a huge success raising £1,358.55 for the charity.
The main cricket event was between ex-Huddersfield town players, staff and guests including two from Coronation Street! The day also included the LV=Britannia Rescue Under-9s Twenty20 tournament and other stalls such as cupcakes, a birds of prey attraction, face painting and souvenirs. Laura, who also attended the Twenty20 cricket match said “Luckily the weather stayed dry all day and it was great to be a part of. I am looking forward to doing more charity work in the future.”
