Huddersfield Town has today been named on a shortlist for the Huddersfield Examiner’s Business Awards 2014.
Town is up for the Stafflex Community Award alongside Legacy Sport CIC and the Holiday Inn Hotel Leeds-Bradford.
The award winner will be named in three weeks’ time at an awards dinner, which will be hosted by Harry Gration at the John Smith’s Stadium on Thursday 13 November.
Sponsored by Town’s Club Partner Chadwick Lawrence, the awards’ judging panel consisted of Chadwick Lawrence’s Steve Bonfield, Adrian Lythgo of Kirklees Council, Sandra Babbings on PROHMS and the University of Huddersfield’s Bob Cryan.
Huddersfield Town was nominated for this accolade having worked hard to earn a position as the focal point for commerce in the local business community, through events such as the Huddersfield Town Enterprise Academy – which now boasts over 2,000 members on LinkedIn (click HERE for more information). The Club will also soon kick-off the 2014 Kirklees Business Week – click HERE for full info.
Town’s extensive charity work also played a big role in the nomination through the Town Foundation’s excellent work alongside businesses in the local community, as well as the £1 million raised for the ‘Keep It Up’ campaign in association with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis commented:
“I am told that the quality of entries was higher than ever, so to be nominated is testament to the hard work that goes on behind the scenes at Huddersfield Town.
“The Club holds a privileged position in the local community; one that everyone here takes very seriously. We’re proud of the difference we have made in our area, both in promoting the businesses of Huddersfield and to local people through our extensive charity work.
“I would like to thank the judging panel for this nomination on behalf of the Club.”
