Air the Bear @ MK Lightning Ice Hockey, MILTON KEYNESSaturday 14 December 2019
Location : Planet Ice: South Row, MILTON KEYNES, Buckinghamshire, MK9 1BL, United Kingdom
MK Lightning are a semi-professional ice hockey team who play on a Saturday night, attracting a crowd of 1100-1600 fans every week, including many families. Every year, they follow an annual American ice hockey tradition of 'Air the Bear' - quite simply, fans buy a brand new teddy bear, seal it in a bag, and when the home team scores their first goal, all the bears get thrown on the ice. Players and helpers then collect all the bears, and they are all donated to a good cause such as the childrens ward at the local hospital (they can then use them by giving them to the children or using them for raffles etc). This year, they will be donating all bears to the new Milton Keynes Cancer Centre which is due to open in November.
