You've done Huddersfield proud

Well done Huddersfield — you came out in force and made your voices heard.

Rally has begun

Hundreds of people have arrived

Getting busier

Runners join the fight

Heart attack survivor and marathon runner Sean Doyle arranged a run from the Greenhead Park Parkrrun up to HRI and then Calderdale Royal Hospital — looks like he had a good turn out!

We had a chat with the Let’s Save Huddersfield A&E Facebook group creator Karl Deitch about the rally earlier this week.

We want as many people to come down as possible to support our campaign.
It’s going to be a nice, calm rally. It won’t be political – this is just about trying to save the A&E both here and in Calderdale because if one closes down it will be horrendous for the other due to the increased demand.
We want people to share their experiences by speaking at the event which they should be able to do so by visiting one of the stalls on the day that will be there and asking for myself or any of the other admins on the Facebook.” - Karl Deitch
