Due to the situation affecting us all at the moment and in conjunction with speaking to the captains & key stakeholders of the event we regret that we are announcing a postponement of this year's main fundraising weekend until July 24th - 25th of 2021.
It has been a decision that has been taken to ensure the safety of the large number of players and also those that would have attended the event supporting the players and charity stalls etc.
With all indications that there will be still social distancing regulations in place and the current lockdown of suppliers and charity staff understandably impeding planning and despite all our best efforts to make the event happen it is the wisest decision we have to take.
We understand that charities at the moment are all facing hardship which is one reason we have delayed in making a decision but what we are also going to make sure is that we do not just stop our fundraising and planning. All players positions and sponsors will be held for next year* but anyone who can not make the new date will receive their registration fee back and once we know the numbers of replacements we require we will open up a new registration.
The players will carry on holding events when safe to do so as part of their fundraising. It will just count to a combined total at next years event.
On Behalf of the Captains & the 2020 organisation committee of the All Stars, we hope everyone remains safe and healthy and look forward to seeing you all in 2021 which we will make sure is the biggest and best yet celebration.
Captains. Sam, Ioana, Reece, Dan, Janu, Chris, Geraint & Adam.
2020 Committee. David, Geraint, Kelly, Gareth & James
All Players can extend their just giving pages to 2021and please contact your captain to confirm you can still attend in 2021 by end of September 2020
But there will be hockey!!!!
During this time we have been aware of how many family members of the All Stars and wider Ice Hockey community work for the NHS and other Care sites and we want to be able to show them how much we respect what they have been putting themselves through.
So in conjunction with the arena and others, and once it is safe to do so, we are delighted to be a Partner in the NHS Puck Stars.
More details on this special one-off event will be announced shortly but if anyone would like to get involved in the planning or sponsorship opportunities, please get in contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Website www.NHSpuckstars.com
