Adam’s Angels fundraising completed

The National Ice Hockey League is pleased to confirm the total raised from its 50/50 draws at the regional play-off events at iceSheffield and Alexandra Palace, with over £1,000 going to support the work of Adam’s Angels.

It was confirmed ahead of the showpiece events on April 6/7 that the portion of monies not awarded as prizes would be donated to our chosen charity beneficiary Adam’s Angels, who responded to the Adam Johnson tragedy by arranging for over 180 catastrophic bleed kits to be given to clubs at all levels of the sport.

Just this past week, the latest donation was made to the BUIHA Finals event in Sheffield, making sure that over 1,000 university players are safe, should the worst occur during a game.

The final total donated to the Angels fund was £1,020.

NIHL general manager Haydn Hunter said: “Thank you to everyone who bought a 50/50 ticket at either of the play-off events,. You have helped support an amazing cause doing great work in our sport.

“We are amazed by the total raised in the end, and I know Erin was too.”

Erin Rose, founder of Adam’s Angels, added: “I am blown away, first that they nominated us as their charity beneficiary for the 50/50, but also by the generosity of the hockey family once again by putting their hands in their pockets to help others.

“Thank to you the NIHL, the events team and everyone involved in what was a great weekend of hockey.”
