THREE Huddersfield charities have benefited from a national soccer match.
The FA Community Shield is the traditional curtain-raiser to the new football season.
It is played between the FA Cup winners and the Premiership champions.
Every team gets an allocation of cash from the game, which last August saw Chelsea beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
Huddersfield Town were granted £5,000.
Club secretary Ann Hough said: "The money must go to local charities, so we chose the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust, Kirkwood Hospice and Huddersfield Hospital Radio."
The radio station is to get £1,000 and the other two £2,000 each.
Staff at Town also boosted the tally for the Forget Me Not Trust by putting money into the charity instead of buying Christmas cards for one another.
That brought in an extra £150.
The trust aims to build a hospice for children in Kirklees or Calderdale.
