SIV boss Dom Stokes has come forward to join the Steelers charity head shave on Saturday 29th December.
Dom will join Ben O’Connor, Jonathan Phillips, Robert Dowd, Arron Johnson, Tanner Eberle and David Simms after the game as they raise funds for “Prevent Breast Cancer” the chosen charity of Vicki Thomas, wife of Steelers legend Mark.
“Since getting into this ice hockey thing I definitely appear to have started to lose my hair quicker than ever before (and of course dealing with Simmsy sometimes means I’m actually pulling my hair out…) so why not go the whole way and shave it off eh….
“Seriously though people tend to forget or not even know that SIVLive is part of Sheffield City Trust which is a charity set up to improve the health and well being of Sheffield. If you buy a pint, a hotdog or a coffee at the Arena that goes to helping fund providing toothpaste and toothbrushes for kids who have never had access to those for example.
“SIVLive and the FlyDSA Arena are very much part of the Steelers family and when this was first mentioned I was keen to do whatever was needed to help out other family members. What Vicky and far too many others continue to have to go through with this terrible disease is unacceptable in this day and age and if this is what I have to do to help support and raise profile for Prevent Breast Cancer then I think it’s safe to say I am the lucky one…although anyone know where I can buy a woolly hat….? ”

The head shave will now take place on the ice after the game on the 29th against Manchester.
It was originally planned that it would take place on concourse level but due to the demand to see the Steelers boys shaved it has been moved to ice level.
