The 14th December is our annual Christmas Teddy Bear Toss game! Fans across the town will by purchasing teddies, bagging them up and throwing them onto the ice after the Swindon Wildcats score their first goal of the night! But why?! Teddy Bear Toss has become an annual tradition in the hockey community and it’s for a very good cause! Every year our chosen charity/community will receive hundreds of teddies to give them to children that need it the most.
Who is it for?
This year Swindon Wildcats are working closely with Barnardo’s, a children’s charity that protects, supports and nurtures the UK’s most vulnerable children. We ask that you join us during the Christmas holidays to help make this time of year a little more special for local children.
How does it work?
Buy a new teddy bear or two (no taller than 12 inches preferably) which MUST include a CE label (which ensures that the manufacturer has checked that these products meet EU safety, health or environmental requirements).
Place it in a clear plastic bag (for protection from the surface of the ice) and tie the top closed.
Bring it to the game against the Peterborough Phantoms on 14th December 2019.
Wait for the first Wildcats goal of the game to be scored (of course, you should always also continue cheering the team on until we score!)
Throw your teddy on to the ice rink as soon as the goal goes in! Whether you’re Rink-side or in the balcony, MAKE THE FUR FLY! If the Wildcats fail to score during the 60-minutes, fans will toss the teddy bears anyway – straight after the final buzzer.
Book your tickets now to support this great cause!
