The second day of the UK Charity All Stars took place at Ice Sheffield yesterday; Sunday. Last year’s winners Dreams Come True were leading the pack at the conclusion of day one with a 100 per cent record from their opening 4 games. Could they maintain it and keep their title? Or would one of the challengers come out of the pack and take it from them?

With a week to go before Craig Anderson takes to the route of the Glasgow Kilt Walk I sat down to talk to him about the motivations behind his choice of charity and what exactly motivated him to pull on a kilt and walk the 23 mile route.
Carmen-Annaliese, a 9 year old Nottingham Panthers fan, will be getting her hair cut on Tuesday 28/11 with a little help from Panthers left-winger Robert Farmer. Farmer will be on hand with his scissors to cut Carmen’s plaits off before a hairdresser on hand will style the youngsters shorter hair.
Carmen will be donating her hair to The Little Princess Trust to make a wig for a child who has lost their own hair through illness or treatment for diseases like cancer. Each of these wigs cost between £350-£500 to make but are provided free of charge by the charity.
Samantha Richardson, Carmen’s mother got in contact with me and asked if I would share her daughters story. Together, not only is young Carmen donating her almost knee length hair, but she wants to raise some money to go towards the costs involved in making the wigs. “Carmen says if she can make just one poorly child smile, she will be happy.” Samantha told me, when I spoke to her a little more in depth about the process. “Cancer is such a cruel disease and effects far too many children. My family and I are season ticket holders to the Nottingham Panthers and I got in contact with them to see if they’d help us out, which they did.”
In order to gather together her fundraising money, Samantha has started a Just Giving page for Carmen which can be found here: Carmen’s Fundraising Page
If you’d be able to help this little girl to raise her target, even £1 would be gratefully received, click through to her page and leave her a message. She’s an inspirational young lady!
Why not share Carmen’s story on your social media and help her to gather even more support?
