This is the website for Manchester Phoenix Community Sports Foundation. We are a charity set up by the Manchester Phoenix Ice Hockey Club dedicated to help introduce disabled and deprived children in the North West to sport. We believe sport and everything that goes with it is important to development and a great way to keep children off the streets.
As some of you maybe aware, Rick and Jackie Hesketh decide they wanted to raise money for the Manchester Phoenix Community Sports Foundation...for those who missed it, here is a quick summary:
"Rick and Jackie Hesketh are undertaking a day-hike to raise funds for the Manchester Phoenix Community Sports Foundation.
The hike will take Rick and Jackie behind enemy 'blue lines' and deep into Sheffield Steeldogs country (and we will drop gloves if necessary...)
It's a 25Km high-level traverse of the Peak District's Eastern Gritstone Edges. Starting at High Neb (460 metres) the route follows Stanage Edge, Higgar Tor, Burbage Rocks , Froggatt Edge, Curbar Edge and finishes with the descent at Baslow Edge (hopefully some 7 or 8 hours later!)
We're hockey people right, so what did you expect - a few laps of Dunham Massey??"
Despite he original attempt being called off due to bad weather, they persevered and completed the route and raised £277.50 for the Foundation.
The Manchester Phoenix Organisation and the Manchester Phoenix Community Sports Foundation would like to thank both Rick and Jackie for their fundraising and to all those who donated and helped them achieve such a great achievement. So as and when you see them at the rink or elsewhere, please stop and thank them..without fundraising by people such as the Heskeths the Foundation wouldn't survive and provide the various programmes that we do as well as looking to improve what we can offer.
Thank you again for such a great idea and the money you have raised, an amazing job!
