Mark Matheson was joined by fellow members of the Steelers roster on Monday afternoon to visit Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in Sheffield.
The Steelers Assistant Coach was full of praise for the service Bluebell Wood provide, and as a father himself couldn’t speak highly enough of the facilities on offer.
It’s good for the guys to get out and give back to the community. This is an amazing place for families to come and not feel intimidated which you might in a hospital, it’s just so different
Following the Steelers Teddy Bear Toss on December 15th vs Coventry, a collection of bears was put aside for visits that are planned to local Hospitals in Sheffield.
Christmas is a time for giving and it wasn’t just the bears that the Steelers took with them. The players’ bubbly personalities brought smiles to not only the Children and families but also the Steelers fans amongst the staff.
Ice Hockey teams wouldn’t succeed without teamwork and the staff at Bluebell Wood displayed how a close-knit team keeps the ship in motion.
The visit was a chance for the players to give back to the local community and support those who support the Steelers out on the ice.
Every day the hospice is required to raise £11,000 just to enable them to keep the service open and just 8.5% of funding is gifted by the government.
This is why the Steelers are delighted to be onboard with Bluebell Wood and show their support for such an amazing place.
