Air the Bear Event - Great SuccessAt Saturday nights game the Trane sponsored Basingstoke Bison held their annual “Air the Bear” event supporting Naomi House.
We would like to thank all our supporters for their tremendous support and amazing number of bears donated. At the end of the game the players handed over the bears to staff and volunteers from Naomi House.
Yesterday we received the following email from Connor Phillips on behalf of Naomi House.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for your support and hospitality on Saturday evening!
Everyone was extremely welcoming and so friendly, and we are so grateful to be able to attend, raise money and receive all of the Teddy Bears!
It was a really nice atmosphere and I know all the volunteers enjoyed themselves.
John Neville on behalf of the Bison commented, “Its great that as a local sporting club we can support such worthwhile local charities with our “Air the Bear” event and other initiatives, helping to make a difference in the local community”.
This weekend the Bison continue with their community initiatives when we continue with our collection for the Basingstoke Food Bank helping people in crisis in the local area over the Christmas period.
The collection point will once again be by the Merchandise table.
