Sponsored walk last Sunday – they avoided the showers but maybe this was helped by visits to the pubs?
A sponsored walk took place around the Valley last Sunday. The 12 people who took part are Molly Jowett, George Jowett, Andy Jowett, Karen Jowett, Amanda Hellawell, Graeme Hoyle, Emma Louise Hardwick, Julie Aston, Philip Woods, Ian Hoyle, Dave Hardwick and Aidan Weir.
George ‘Little’ Richardson: You were an amazing, talented, hilarious, and respected person, who will be remembered in the hearts and minds of everyone
George ‘Little’ Richardson (just like ‘Big’ George Richardson) is another good friend of Huw’s – I’m not sure what they’ll do about their names if ‘little’ George gets the same size as ‘big’ George 🙂 There’s not much in it now! Little George has lots of good memories of Huw. George lent Huw some gear for Ella’s surprise fancy dress party in early March this year. It was a bit tight on Huw which made everyone laugh the picture here is Huw in the gear giving Ella some Heros chocs for her birthday. I dropped Huw off outside the pub in Scholes to meet George that night and picked him up at the party. Huw had a wonderful time that night at Ella’s party with George and a whole bunch of his lovely friends. And here are some more memories from George.
Memories of Huw & some Trust news this week: he was always the main guy on the field at lunch, it was like everyone looked up to him
There are some lovely memories from Molly Jowett this week and news of a sponsored walk that her and her family and friends are organising this Sunday. There are also memories from a year ago as Hepworth under 16s start training again, plus news of donations as the Trust total reaches an incredible £28,000 (and still rising). Oh and Huw’s Bluebirds beat Town in a thriller infront of a group of Huw’s friends in the Carling Cup.
This picture is Huw with some of his cousins in Brecon in August 2007. Read on to find out what this was all about at the end of this post about lovely memeories of Huw and his beautiful smile in the summer holidays.
Coast to coast part 2: Huw was also in our hearts when we were laughing, enjoying the great company & getting spooked out in a weird village
As promised here is the eagerly awaited (I hope) Part 2 of the report back from the Coast to Coast cycle. I hope Huw was laughing with us as we pushed ourselves, laughed, rested and messed about for 3 or 4 days. Oh and there was a period where we were a bit mistifyed during our overnight stay on Saturday night!
Tonight’s match at Brighouse turned out just the way we hoped it would. It was an evening of hope – and with a clear common purpose of showing support for Huw and his Trust. The support from our friends at Brighouse Town FC, the Holme Valley clubs and the three former Huddersfield Town players showed the local football community at its best. The football was played in a great spirit and it was an entertaining game, edged 2-1 by a Brighouse Town side containing a large number of first team players from the Northern Counties East League, Premier Division.
Huw travelled in our hearts with us as we climbed & descended 10,000 feet across the hills of northern England this weekend ♥
We started at seal level in Whitehaven and finished at sea level in Tynemouth. In between these Westerly and Easterly points we cycled 144 miles, conquered the Pennine Hills, and climbed and descended around 10,000 feet – that’s the equivalent of going up and down Snowdon (the highest mountain in England and Wales) from sea level, nearly 3 times!
One of Huw’s best friends is Sam Bellas – they first met at football when they were 6 and then became close friends at Holmfirth High. Huw was as lucky to have friends like Sam as they were lucky to have him. Sam is great company whether you are an adult or teenager and is one of the cyclists taking part in the Coast to Coast ride. Thanks Sam for the lovely memories.
Nick, Jenny and Carys have had a Hepworth United number 2 shirt with photos and a pen- picture framed and it has been on the wall in the Sports Hall corridor – at the top of the stairs. The shirt (pictured) is in a case so is 3D instead of a flat shirt; Huw will always be a part of Holmfirth High School. He will be there in people´s hearts and with his shirt ♥
With many thanks to the school.
Lauren Samson & Marie Brammah: ‘You were so lovely’….’you are one of the sweetest, kindest people I have met’
Lauren and Marie both left lovely messages for Huw in March –they both knew Huw but said they didn’t know him well. Either way they have said some lovely things about Huw – thank you Lauren and Marie for the memories.
