Throughout November, ice hockey team Nottingham Panthers have been raising money for the Oncology Department at Nottingham Hospitals in memory of their former General Manager, Gary Moran, who sadly passed away from cancer in December 2021, and for everyone affected by cancer right here in Nottingham.

By selling replica training jerseys and auctioning off the lavender jerseys worn by players during their warm-up sessions, Panthers have raised a total of £6977.10 for the hospital.

Nottingham Hospitals Charity hosted a stand at home game matches throughout November and provided fans with the chance to win a limited edition signed Nottingham Panthers jersey.

On Sunday 27th November, the Panthers played a special Hockey Fights Cancer match against Manchester Storm and our CEO Barbara Cathcart was presented with a signed lavender training jersey.

Fans were also invited to share who they were fighting for, using special Panthers Fight Cancer placards which were available online and at the Nottingham Hospitals Charity stand.

“We’re so pleased that we could once again support Panthers Fight Cancer month and help Nottingham Panthers raise money for the Oncology Department at Nottingham Hospitals, which I know is very close to their hearts. We were delighted to meet so many fans throughout November and be part of some great home games.”
