The Boxing Day Atkins Foundation Tribute
'B-DAFT' is the brain child of Michelle Avery who had the fantastic idea of honouring the memory of Pete on the anniversary of his passing in a truly crazy and inclusive way whilst raising funds to support the continued work of the foundation.
On boxing day the Pete Atkins Youth Hockey Foundation invites anyone and everyone who knew Pete from any club to join them for a refreshing dip in the sea*!
Location: Meet at the City of Portsmouth clubhouse
(Portsmouth Cricket Club, St Helen's Ground, Eastern Parade, Portsmouth PO4 9RF)
Suggested donation: £5 if you're brave enough to dip, £10 if you would prefer to watch
Following a dip in the sea we will retire back to the clubhouse to warm up, celebrate and have a drink in Pete's memory.
If you are unable to join us but wish to be involved feel free to complete your own crazy challenge on boxing day wherever you are (the crazier the better). Please post your photos or videos to social media tagging @pompeyhockey and with the #B-DAFT and make your donation to the account below:
The Pete Atkins Youth Hockey Foundation
We look forward to seeing you all on Boxing day as well as seeing the videos and pictures!
Merry Christmas from the Pete Atkins Youth Hockey Foundation
