Huddersfield Town Foundation: Our chosen charity

At The Bigger Boat, we're firm believers in the power of collaboration and community support. That's why we're delighted to reveal Huddersfield Town Foundation as the chosen charity of the year for both ourselves and our sister company Scriba PR.

Here, we explain why we chose the charity, what we’ll be doing for it in collaboration with Scriba, and what we hope this will achieve.

Choosing our charity of the year

Huddersfield Town Foundation has been the official charity of Huddersfield Town AFC for 10 years – inspiring people, fostering partnerships, and delivering various projects across Kirklees. Its dedication to collaborating with local organisations and creating opportunities to enrich lives in the area cemented the foundation as our chosen charity for 2024.

Supporting the community via a new website

As part of this commitment, we're proud to donate a brand-new web platform valued at £20,000 to aid the foundation's mission of providing accessible sports and educational opportunities to enrich lives in Kirklees.

For over a year, our teams have actively participated in Huddersfield Town Foundation's sub-committee, contributing to the shaping of its marketing strategy and initiatives. This donation of a new website marks a natural progression of our ongoing support for the foundation's admirable work within our local community.

Maximising online presence

The new website will amplify the foundation's impact by giving it a platform to effectively share its inspiring stories and showcase community impact, conveying the breadth of the charity’'s activities and the individuals it serves – particularly at a time where online presence is crucial.

Not only will a new website facilitate the foundation's expansion and maximise its benefits for residents of Kirklees, but it harnesses the potential to drive fundraising efforts and provide easy access to information and resources for the community, ensuring transparency and inclusivity. Meanwhile, our colleagues at Scriba will focus on empowering the foundation's growth and expanding its reach through innovative communication strategies.

Continuing our commitment to charitable causes

The acquisition of Scriba PR in June last year further solidifies our commitment to supporting charitable causes. Together, we have supported numerous charities, including Leeds Baby Bank, ANDYSMANCLUB, Yorkshire Children’s Centre, Thrombosis UK, Conscious Youth, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, and Cancer Support Bradford & Airedale.

We're excited to continue our journey with Huddersfield Town Foundation, empowering our community and making a meaningful difference to the lives of those in the local area. For updates on the website launch and our ongoing initiatives with the foundation, sign up to our newsletter.
