TWO of Huddersfield’s charities have joined forces to support each other.
The West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust which aims to provide a much-needed service for children with life-limiting conditions has formed a partnership with Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL).
This year is very important for the Trust as work is due to start in the summer on building its hospice in Brackenhall and providing care for families within their own homes.
KAL, which has the vision to get ‘more people more active more often’ within its 11 sports centres and swimming pools will be promoting the charity over the next year.
This will include banners, posters, sales of flowers and donation buckets and on its literature.
The partnership was launched at the Stadium Health and Fitness Complex with the help of visiting cricketer, former England captain Alec Stewart.
KAL chief executive Alasdair Brown said: “We are delighted to be able to support this local charity which is going to provide such an essential service for the people of Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield.
“We are planning many fundraising events and hopefully our customers are poised to take part in challenges to help raise as much money as possible.
“By helping increase the profile of the Forget Me Not Trust, KAL will be helping provide much-needed support for children in the local area.’’
