Christmas Present Drop in association with PET-Xi

This Saturday, the Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are in action against the Dundee Stars at the Skydome Arena (7pm face-off).

It’s the run-up to Christmas and in conjunction with our friends from PET-Xi, we are asking all of our amazing fans to help us and support a ‘Present Drop’ to help make Christmas special for the children of the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity (UHCW).

On the 16th December, Scorch, two Blaze players and two members of staff from PET-Xi will be visiting the hospital wards at UHCW to kindly hand over the presents.

The only thing we ask is that the presents donated be new and in original packaging and not a soft-toy/teddy bear type gift – those will come in handy soon when we run our Teddy Bear Toss!

Pet-Xi will have a table at the game on Saturday, (in front of the SkyLounge) where fans can make donations of presents.

The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze and PET-Xi have been working together on community projects for some time now and Fleur Sexton, Joint Managing Director from PET-Xi said:

“It’s fabulous to be working with the Coventry Blaze, supporting our community. PET-Xi and Coventry Blaze are working together in true partnership to help young people tackle difficult, real-world barriers head on.”


Nationally renowned and winner of the Small Business of the Year Award at the recent Coventry Telegraph Business Awards, PET-Xi have over 20 years’ experience of working with hundreds of schools across the UK to deliver intensive, results-based interventions for young people who are at risk of not achieving their academic potential (read more).
