Isle of Wight Hockey Club has set a lockdown challenge with the community to raise money for their club and enable them to buy kits and equipment.
Following the government guidelines for the 2nd lockdown, the 20/21 hockey season has been put on hold until further notice, which means no games or training sessions.
Following this news, the IOW Hockey Club Ladies 1st XI team set themselves a lockdown challenge to walk or run the length of the UK (Land’s End to John O’Groats 950 miles).
The goal is to raise money for the club to buy kit/equipment, but also to share some joy to the community, which is why the Hockey Club has also decided to split the money they raise between themselves and ‘Be A Santa For A Senior’ which delivers gifts locally to isolated, lonely seniors and vulnerable people
A GoFundMe page has been set up – gf.me/u/y7gfw2 – over £300 of the clubs £1000 target has already been raised.
