HUDDERSFIELD TOWN is perfectly happy to get booked!
The club has announced the addition of award-winning Igloo Books to its list of partners.
The Northampton-based company is the latest in an extensive list of recent partners to get on board with the club.
It follows the announcements of partnerships with Leeds-Bradford Airport-based private aviation company Multiflight; Batley-based customised Land Rover manufacturers Overfinch; local workwear specialists Xamax Clothing; and Huddersfield-based national food service specialists Total Foodservice.
The partnership between Igloo Books and Huddersfield Town revolves around community literacy. An exciting new project involving schools and young children in Kirklees is in the pipeline and will be announced in due course.
Formed in 2003, Igloo Books featured in the Sunday Times in 2010 as the 68th fastest growing private company in the UK over the past five years.
The company also won the 2011 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category and was a finalist in the Santander Small to Medium-Sized Business of the Year Award at last year’s National Business Awards.
Igloo Books publishes children and adult books and is licensed brand owners of children’s characters such as Humf, Humphrey’s Corner, Rachel Hale and Forever Friends.
Sean Jarvis, Huddersfield Town’s commercial director, said: “Getting Igloo to become a partner is a coup of sorts as they are yet another big award-winning brand with an international presence which has joined forces with Huddersfield Town.”
John Styring, managing director of Igloo Books, said: “I have been very impressed at the way that the football club is working to support the local communities and in particular the children.
“It is great that Town are prepared to put significant effort, resource and time into supporting the education of their current and future fans. This initiative reflects a growing presence in the community with HTAFC that runs alongside the growing success of the football team.”
