Air The Bear 2023

This Sunday is our annual ‘Air The Bear’ event at Hull Ice Arena when the Seahawks face the MK Lightning at 5:30pm.

When the Seahawks score their first goal on Sunday evening, the bears will be thrown onto the ice with all the collected soft toys to be gifted to children in the Hull Royal hospital in time for Christmas.

Remember, the toys must be brand new and wrapped in a plastic bag to keep them clean for distributing to the worthy hospital we are donating to. We accept all types of soft toys, not just teddies, but they do need to be brand new and wrapped in a plastic bag.

The plan is as follows:

  • All bears MUST be brand new and wrapped in a plastic bag.
  • At the first goal for the Seahawks, throw the teddies onto the ice through the doors which will be opened upon the goal being awarded.
  • Mascots and players will then collect the bears which will be delivered to Hull Royal Infirmary children’s ward by some of the Seahawks team later in the week as a Christmas gift.
  • If the Seahawks don’t manage to score in the game, the bears will be thrown on the ice at the end of the game. (Hopefully we don’t get to that point!)

We are very aware this isn’t the most smooth process in the world but with the netting surrounding all the way around the rink, we still want to donate to an incredible cause to put smiles on faces this festive season and give back to the community.

Please get yourself down to the rink and support us and this great cause if you can, thank you very much for your support!
