HYO and Dominic Rodgers Trust to kick off a safer 2012

HYO and Dominic Rodgers Trust to kick off a safer 2012

Huddersfield Youth Opera and The Dominic Rodgers Trust have joined forces to raise awareness about carbon monoxide poisoning. To kick off a safer 2012 we've got 20 carbon monoxide alarms to give away to the first 20 people who can answer this Town teaser:
Which former Huddersfield Town striker went on to an international opera career?

Answers can be emailed to jon@huddersfieldyouthopera.com before 5pm on Monday 9th January.  Winners will be notified and the results displayed on www.huddersfieldyouthopera.com

Huddersfield Youth Opera and the Dominic Rodgers Trust appeared together for the Huddersfield Town match against Chesterfield on Boxing Day, which saw Town beat the Spireites 1-0.  Baritone Jamal Rahman sang the famous Toreador’s song before the match and Stacey Rodgers spoke to a crowd of 15,380 about the Trust’s work to raise awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning.

These events were made possible through the generous support of four carbon monoxide alarm manufacturers – Kidde, Ei Electronics, Honeywell and Sprue/FireAngel – and their trade association, CoGDEM, the Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring.

After the death of her son in 2004, Stacey Rodgers formed the Dominic Rodgers Trust and has campaigned tirelessly in Huddersfield and nationally for greater awareness of carbon monoxide poisoning and a wider use of carbon monoxide alarms in peoples’ homes.
