Here’s a clue:









Apart from us all being gorgeous, we all support Huddersfield Town FC. Not only that, we are all patrons of the charity set up by Huddersfield Town’s owner, Dean Hoyle.

The Huddersfield Town Foundation  aims to raise money for local charities and good causes in the Kirklees area. In particular, the Foundation has set up Breakfast Clubs to provide a nutritious breakfast for primary school children in deprived areas and also sends out the fabulous reading diaries to 15,000 schoolchildren.














The Foundation’s cheerful

reading diaries produced by

Igloo Books.


I can’t wait to get going as patron. I’ll be visiting some of the Foundation’s schools on World Book Day next year. I’ll no doubt be performing extracts from There’s Only One Danny Ogle. I mean, it would be rude not to, seeing as Danny supports the greatest team in football the world has ever seen, too!
