Employee Pete Frith Nomitated for Volunteer of the Year!
Collingwood Health is very proud of employee Pete Frith!
It has been announced today that employee Pete Frith has been nominated for volunteer of the year in the Disability Sport Yorkshire Awards 2020 for all his work fundraising and competing on behalf of good causes with his team Sheffield Steelkings Para Ice Hockey Club.
This is fantastic news and the entire organisation is happy for him, his team and all they have achieved in supporting great causes.
Pete’s Comments In July I will be taking part in my 9th Allstars Charity Ice Hockey Tournament which is taking place at Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff. Having previously supported charities such as St Luke’s Hospice, Autism Plus, Wales Air Ambulance and Sheffield Children’s Hospital, this year, I am proud to announce I will be once again supporting the fantastic charity Help 4 Heroes. Over 130 players of all abilities will be playing for these charities with the dual aim of taking home the coveted UKFAS trophy, but more importantly, raising the maximum possible amounts for the charities. The tournament is taking place over the weekend of the 24th-26th July with the games starting starting at mid day on the Saturday. A weekend pass is available so please come along and support some true Beer League Hockey stars.
Pete is fundraising for Help for Heroes and needs to raise £200 by May.
LET’S HELP HIM MAKE HIS GOAL!
His overall goal is to raise a minimum of £850 by July to support wounded men and women who have served in our armed forces and now need our help to live a normal life.
You can donate to this cause through his Just Giving page
