The Blackburn Hawks would like to invite you all to take part in their annual Teddy Bear Toss this Sunday during the game versus the Nottingham Lions.
When Blackburn Hawks score their first goal, fans are to throw the bears onto the ice. The bears will be gathered together and taken by the team to the Children’s Ward at Royal Blackburn Hospital at a later date to spread some festive cheer.
If you would like to donate a bear or gift could we please ask the following:
- Please make sure your teddy/soft toy is new. These toys are being taken into hospitals, therefore for hygiene reasons pre-owned bears cannot be taken.
- Please put your bear into a tied plastic bag to protect it from the ice.
- For safety reasons do not throw anything other than teddies and soft toys – toys, games or gifts for older children can be brought to the merchandise table. If you would like to bring it gift wrapped, please ensure that you mark on the parcel the age range the gift is suitable for.
Thank you all in advance for your kind generosity. Let’s make this a bumper year!
