Huddersfield Town Foundation has proudly announced its inaugural charity golf day, set to take place on Thursday 11th July 2024, at the Crosland Heath Golf Club. This event aims to raise crucial funds for the foundation’s Breakfast Clubs programme, which provides healthy breakfasts to children in need across Kirklees.

Golf enthusiasts and supporters alike are invited to join Huddersfield Town legend, Keith Hanvey, for a day of friendly competition. Teams of four can register for just £350, which includes a sandwich, tea or coffee upon arrival, a two-course meal, and sponsorship of a hole for your business or team.

The Foundation’s breakfast clubs have served over 2.5 million meals since their inception, providing children affected by poverty with a nutritious start to their day of learning. The annual cost of running these clubs exceeds £140,000, making events like the charity golf day crucial for sustaining these efforts. By purchasing a team ticket, competitors would feed 70 children breakfast for one month. 

The day kicks off with registration, practice, and refreshments at 11am, followed by a shotgun-style tee-off at 12.30pm. Throughout the event, participants can engage in fun games and challenges before wrapping up with an evening meal and award presentations starting at 5pm. The event promises not only a memorable day of golf but also the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the local community.

“With one in four three-10 year-olds in Kirklees living in relative poverty, initiatives like our Breakfast Clubs are more vital than ever,” says Siobhan Atkinson, chief executive of Huddersfield Town Foundation. “By participating in our charity golf day, you’re not only enjoying a day of sport and camaraderie but also directly supporting the wellbeing and education of children in our community.”

In addition to the golf tournament, sponsorship opportunities are available, including headline sponsorship for £2,000 – which would feed 400 children breakfast for a month – and supporting packages starting from £550. Sponsors gain visibility and recognition while contributing to a worthy cause.
