The Bracknell Bees, in partnership with the Bracknell Hornets, are pleased today to announce a Christmas charity match between the two sides on Wednesday 27th December (6pm faceoff), at The Hive!

The NIHL Division 1 South Britton Bracknell Bees will take on the NIHL Division 2 South Wilkinson Bracknell Hornets and the match will be in aid of male cancer charity Orchid.

Orchid aims to encourage, support and fund research into the causes, prevention and treatment of male cancers.

It has identified new ways to treat male cancers and improved understanding of how these cancers behave. You can find out more about them and their work on their website at

Come along and celebrate the Bees 30th Anniversary, the Festive holidays and help raise funds for Orchid as well! 

On the night there will be a post-game Skate with the Players, a social event with the players in the hospitality suite (also post-game) as well as special raffles, competitions & more during the evening.  

We will also be holding a Christmas Jumper competition!   So make sure that you wear your best, or worst, Christmas jumper as the one selected as the best will receive a prize on the night!

Tickets for this special one off match are as below:

  • Adults (over 18’s) - £5

  • Juniors (up to 17 years of age) - £1

Please note that this game is not covered by either Bracknell Bees or Bracknell Hornets season tickets.

As part of the fund-raising efforts both teams will be wearing special jerseys, once again designed by our friends at Cassio Designs, for the match.   The unique jerseys feature the Orchid colours and logos as well as special Bees and Hornets logos.   The jerseys are priced at £65 per jersey and both squad’s jerseys will be available to Own & Loan.

There will be a further press release unveiling the jerseys designs and opening the Own & Loan scheme, on a strictly first come first served basis on Thursday 30th November at 7pm.   Keep your eyes on the Bracknell Bees website and social media that evening for the designs and we will be accepting Own & Loan purchases from 7pm that evening.
