Adam’s Angels chosen as charity beneficiary for regional play-off finals

National Ice Hockey League (NIHL) management are pleased to announce that the charity beneficiary of this weekend’s 50/50 draws at both iceSheffield and Alexandra Palace will be Adam’s Angels.

In normal style, the total fund will be split with the winning ticket holder getting half of the amount, and the other half will be donated to the charity.

Adam’s Angels was set up in the wake of Adam Johnson’s tragic death in October and has raised money to purchase and supply over 180 catastrophic bleed kits to clubs and teams throughout the UK.

Erin Rose, founder of Adam’s Angels, said: “Adam’s Angels is a campaign set up to supply medical kit and equipment in memory of Adam and to his team of Angels in the way of sponsors and the hockey family that came forward to help make this initiative possible.

“Thanks to our amazing sponsors and the kindness and generosity of the hockey family, we have so far supplied over 180 kits to teams and clubs around the UK.

“The money is still coming in and as such, to help to continue our work I am registering Adam’s Angels as an official non profit organisation, serving as a lasting legacy for Adam and addressing a crucial need within our sport in the UK, so any support would be greatly appreciated.”

NIHL general manager Haydn Hunter said: “The whole of the hockey community was hit hard by what happened to Adam Johnson, and the support of groups like Adam’s Angels has been amazing.

“To supply all NIHL clubs and teams with the catastrophic bleed kit and then keep going to cover many other clubs and teams is fantastic.  I hope this weekend’s 50/50 share will help Erin and the Adam’s Angels continue their help and support to the UK hockey family.”

Tickets will be sold at both regional play-off finals this coming weekend, the north event at iceSheffield and the south at Alexandra Palace.
