Huddersfield recruitment firm Stafflex donated its hospitality box for Town’s first home game of the season to teenage charity The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.

Stafflex, currently celebrating 15 years of trading in Huddersfield, dedicated its hospitality box to the charity that was set up in the name of local girl Laura Crane who tragically died from cancer whilst studying her A Levels at Greenhead College.

“We have use of the box for twenty three matches plus other special occasions throughout the year and we thought it would be a good idea to let a local charity also benefit from our sponsorship of Huddersfield Town so we advertised the box on Twitter and immediately got a reply from Helen Mervill at The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust. We are thrilled that they auctioned the box off at a recent golf day, receiving several hundred pounds donated from a guest at the charity golf day dinner,” said Nadio Granata, Head of Marketing at Stafflex.

Helen Mervill Fundraising Manager added:

“We were thrilled to be able to offer our supporters the use of the Stafflex box at Huddersfield Town and are hugely grateful to Stafflex for their kind donation. Laura’s charity relies solely on the generous support of individuals and organisations to generate funds and be able to continue increasing the support we can offer to teenagers and young adults with cancer both locally and further afield.”

The Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust is a Huddersfield based charity raising funds to support young people with cancer aged 13-24 and invests in the future of all young cancer patients through research and health awareness.

Although the charity works nationally, its work in the Yorkshire hospitals including the recent funding for a teenage radiotherapy treatment room and community space, ensures teenagers and young adults in Kirklees are receiving better support whilst undergoing treatment
