The Championship club launched its Keep It Up campaign in 2009. From every £1 raised, 50p goes to YAA and 50p to the Huddersfield Town Youth Academy.

Supporters have taken part in a series of fundraising events such as the recent Pedal For Pounds challenge, which saw 300 cyclists bike 250 miles from Arsenal's Emirates stadium to the John Smith stadium in Huddersfield.

Huddersfield Town chairman Dean Hoyle said: "Huddersfield Town is committed to making a difference to the local community and there is no better example of the club and its fans working together, alongside a charity with this goal than the Keep It Up campaign.

"The Yorkshire Air Ambulance provides a vital service across our county and I'm delighted to report that the money generated for the charity through Keep It Up has funded every life-saving flight the YAA has undertaken in a Huddersfield postcode since we launched this partnership in 2009.

"Keep It Up has also been of huge financial benefit to our academy, the success of which is very important to the long-term sustainability of the club."

YAA needs to raise £3.6 million a year to keep both of its helicopters running.

YAA director of fundraising Paul Gowland said: "Five years ago we could never have predicted just how successful this partnership was going to be. It was new territory for both us and Huddersfield Town who have been fantastic at driving the campaign.

"However, the success of it has been down to the fans getting behind Keep It Up and showing their support. Their passion and dedication to the campaign over the last five years is amazing and they should all be commended. We cannot thank them and the club enough."

Robins ponders Lolley debut

Huddersfield Town travel to third placed QPR in good shape after winning three of their last four matches, and with two new strikers in their ranks.

Nahki Wells - signed from Bradford City a week ago - scored on his debut last Saturday against Millwall, and will feature in the squad, but manager Mark Robins has yet to decide whether he will include Joe Lolley, brought in for £250,000 from non-league Kidderminster on Wednesday.

Robins spoke to Calendar's John Shires, and says he expects to give QPR a good game:

Joe Lolley: Watch winger's FA cup stunner

After shelling out £1.2 million for Bradford City's Nahki Wells on Friday, Huddersfield Town have added to their ranks again - stumping up a reported £250,000 to bring Kidderminster Harriers' highly rated Joe Lolley to the John Smiths Stadium.

It has been an amazing rise for the 21 year old who, 12 months ago, was playing in the Midland Combination League - the tenth tier of the English football pyramid.

Lolley gave notice of what Town fans can expect by scoring the winning goal against League One Peterborough on Tuesday night, to earn the Conference side a fourth round trip to Premier League Sunderland.

This is Lolley's second transfer this season, having moved from Midlands Combination side Littleton, where he scored 88 times in 83 appearances.

The move to Huddersfield sees him rise seven divisions in just six months.
