On 11st August, the Peterborough Predators and MK Rumble held a charity match and raffle and raised an impressive £653 for their local mental health charity Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind).
This is the 11th annual memorial ice hockey match between the two teams, created in memory of Stuart Allen, a young Predator player who tragically died in a fatal car accident whilst travelling home from a late night match at Milton Keynes over 11 years ago. An annual match is held in remembrance, with the funds raised being given to a different local charity every year.
Richard Allen, Predator player and father of the late Stuart Allen said, “We were delighted to support CPSL Mind this year as we know how important mental health is and about getting the right support when you need it. It was a great charity event made even better by the Predators winning 6-5.”
Zoe Doherty, fundraiser for CPSL Mind commented, “We were thrilled when Richard chose us as their charity to support this year. Last year we provided 23,900 hours of direct support to local people recovering from mental health challenges and this generous donation will enable us to continue to provide our much needed services. The match was very closely fought and so exciting to watch. A huge thank you to everyone who was involved.”
