Annual Teddy Bear Toss
The Bracknell Bees are pleased to announce that as part of the festive season celebrations we will be holding our annual “Teddy Bear Toss” on behalf of our local charity partners at the bumper festive Boxing Day game at The Hive vs the Guildford Flames.
As in years gone by the airing of the bears is triggered by either the Bees’ first goal of the night or the buzzer to signify the end of the opening period.
Both sets of fans are encouraged to bring along new or good quality soft toys and get involved with this great charity event. The soft toys donated will be collected and given to local worthy causes.
Please make sure that you place your bears or soft toys into a plastic bag first to stop their fur getting wet or sticking to the ice!
Last season, as always, we saw an impressive amount of bears and soft toys donated and this year we are hoping to top that – we look forward to seeing the bears aired!
