FORMER Town legend Denis Law is back in Huddersfield next week.
The ex-Scottish international will officially open The Oakes Care Centre, a 60-bed care home for older people.
The opening takes place at 12.30pm on Wednesday, July 11.
The Oakes welcomed its first residents in April following a multi-million pound investment.
The centre, based at Willwood Avenue, Oakes is operated by Meridian, an independent care provider, and provides care for those needing residential and dementia care.
Denis Law began his footballing career in 1956 at Huddersfield Town.
After four years, he signed for Manchester City, but is best remembered for the 11 years he played at Manchester United. He is patron of a number of UK football charities.
The Oakes Centre already has a strong sporting connection with Huddersfield – having invited Town ambassador Andy Booth and striker Jordan Rhodes in April to view the sporting memorabilia collection for residents with dementia.
Susan Firth, managing director of Meridian Healthcare, said: “The Oakes is our first care centre in Huddersfield.
“Given that Denis Law started his stellar career in Huddersfield, it is absolutely fitting that one of football’s true gentlemen helps us officially open The Oakes.”
