Grimsby Wolves Female Ice Hockey Team receives £500 Costa Coffee donation

Costa Coffee is offering vital support to Grimsby Wolves Female Ice Hockey Team as part of its Community Grants scheme. With a £500 donation, the company is giving a little lift to crucial causes in the communities around its stores.

The Community Grants programme gives team members from across Costa Coffee’s business the chance to nominate causes in their area to receive a donation in support of their work.

Grimsby Wolves Female Ice Hockey Team compete in the women’s national ice hockey league, and are the only female ice hockey team in Lincolnshire.

Costa Coffee’s Community Grant has provided the sports team with additional funds which they plan to use for beginner sessions to encourage newcomers to ice hockey, as well as additional training sessions for the team prior to the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

Nikki Burnett, assistant captain and team treasurer, Grimsby Wolves Female Ice Hockey Team, says: “We are so grateful to be nominated for the Costa Coffee Community Grant as it acknowledges what we are trying to achieve in the local community.

“Our aim is to promote health, fitness and wellbeing, by providing an opportunity for girls and women to become part of an inclusive team in a fast-paced exciting sport. Unfortunately, ice hockey is a financially demanding sport, so we appreciate Costa Coffee’s much-needed support.”
