Two recreational ice hockey teams will take to the ice this weekend to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Cardiff Bay Lightning and Cardiff Eagles play each other for the second year running to raise money for charity. The last time these two teams played each other in 2012, they raised £3000 for childrens cancer charity Clic Sargent
It is not just the recreational teams that are getting involved though. Both sides will be guesting a couple of players from Cardiffs’ professional team, the Cardiff Devils, who play in the Elite League.
There will be childrens’ entertainment in the break and a raffle to win a hockey shirt signed by Devils star forward Mac Faulkner.
Planet Ice who run Cardiff Ice Arena have donated the ice time and many friends, families and local businesses have already contributed.
Bunny Bumpkin Maternity, Nursing and Baby are sponsoring their Sales & Marketing director Martin Burridge who will be playing for the Cardiff Eagles.
Bunny Bumpkin wishes both teams the best of luck and hopes the event is a great success for all involved.
The match faces off at 7pm on Sunday May 5th at Cardiff Ice Arena in Cardiff Bay. Entrance is free though a donation to the Marie Curie Cancer Care will be appreciated.
