Next Sunday, 17 November, is the 2019 Whitley Warriors Teddy Toss – it’s a bit earlier than last year due to how the fixtures have fallen this season.
This year’s charity is FACT, which stands for Fighting All Cancers… Together! FACT is based in Newcastle and they source, promote and form relationships between the support services, groups, organisations and charities that are available to cancer patients. By bringing together these services, a network of cross-referral and recommended support can be formed. By strengthening the network of support, FACT gives those suffering from cancer, cancer survivors, and their friends and families the opportunity to access services more easily and more quickly, often at a time when speed and ease is essential.
Like last year, please make sure that all bears are in an as-new condition and that they are wrapped in cling film – please don’t throw unwrapped bears on the ice. When Warriors score their first goal, AIR THE BEAR!
