Hexagon and Telford Tigers would like to thank all the fans who took part in the Wings for Life Jersey Auction.
On the 19th March the Hexagon Telford Tigers took to the ice in their home game against Leeds Knights, wearing a charity jersey designed by title sponsors Hexagon in support of the Hexagon 2023 Charity of the year Wings for Life.
The auction on the evening raised £2,289.40 which is a fantastic amount and could not have been achieved without the help and support of the loyal Telford Tigers fans.
Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager of the Tigers said “What a fantastic response from the fans to support Hexagon’s chosen charity, “Wings For Life”. I think the shirt design was excellent and I was very pleased to see the final amount that Tigers are donating to the charity.”
David Brown the General Manager of the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Division based in Halesfield Telford was quoted as saying on behalf of Hexagon “What a wonderful gesture and achievement by Telford Tigers to help us raise funds for our chosen charity. We love the jersey design and would like to thank the Tigers fans for getting onboard with the jersey auction and raising a massive amount for Wings for Life. “
David went on to say “Wings for Life is a not for profit nationally recognised foundation for spinal cord research. At Hexagon we have chosen Wings for Life as our recognised charity and help support the research projects and clinical studies worldwide to heal the spinal cord injuries. “
The Wings for Life mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. Because science agrees: injured nerve cells are capable of regeneration.
