Teddy Bear Toss 2018
After expressing their thanks for recent years and the tremendous support fans of the Panthers have given to the annual teddy bear toss the Salvation Army have passed the baton this year saying they have enough in stock for Christmas this time around.
In their place our chosen charity for the year Autism East Midlands have jumped on the chance to pass the donations on to families, youngsters in schools and use the bears to raise funds and awareness.
The teddy bear toss will take place at the home game against Belfast on Saturday November 10th.
Said a club spokeswoman today: “It will be the usual simple operation. We’re asking fans to donate new teddy bears and soft toys to the cause. They need to be well wrapped in plastic and you bring your donations to the game and when the Panthers score their first goal you throw them on to the ice. The response in recent seasons has been superb and it’s a really spectacular sight. The new cause is so worthwhile we know the fans are going to get behind it in numbers again and we wanted to give everyone an early heads up so they can get prepared for the teddy bear toss. Thanks everyone!”
