The Belfast Giants annual Teddy Bear toss returns this Friday, on the 5th December as the Giants take on the Nottingham Panthers at The SSE Arena, Belfast. The Teddy Bear Toss will challenge fans to throw as many stuffed toys as they can onto the ice following the Giants first goal of the game.
Then soon after, the Giants players will deliver the toys to children at various hospitals throughout Belfast as well as to the Cash for Kids/Cool FM Mission Christmas appeal.
The Teddy Bear Toss Basics:
– It is a Teddy Bear Toss by name, but we will accept any soft toy (not just bears!). It would be ideal they were suitable for children from birth upwards (please check the label). This means that they can go to the littlest baby, all the way through to the bigger boys and girls!
– For sanitary purposes, please ensure you put the soft toy into a clear plastic bag (not a bag you picked up at the local shop that has branding all over it). Ideally you find a clear, unbranded plastic bag to put your toy inside.
– Please ensure the soft toy is brand new, not an old stuffed toy you want to get rid of. We cannot use anything that isn’t brand new and childrens’ hospitals need them to be clean (hence the plastic bags).
Remember – when the Giants score their first goal on Friday night at The SSE Arena, you throw your soft toy onto the ice, not before that!
Help us make Christmas 2015 one to remember for families around Northern Ireland!
