Hawkinsport are fully supporting the #OpEndure tour by kindly donating a wide range of products to help make the tour possible. Items being provided include hockey balls, water bottles, holdalls and much more.

Hawkinsport is proud to sponsor Hockey for Heroes charity in their support of injured veterans through the hockey community. We are very happy to take on the opportunity to sponsor the equipment and kit for the ladies team traveling across the UK as they start their first #OpEndure Tour.

Having met the girls this morning at Bisham, we are delighted to be supporting this amazing charity. We wish them good luck in their matches and challenges over the next 8 days and will be following closely as they raise money in support of Help for Heroes.”

The Hockey for Heroes team continues to undertake tasks that mix a combination of exceptional physical exertion combined with playing hockey. 2018 witnessed the first ladies squad challenge, with the team completing 8 military exercises and playing 29 games hockey over an 8 day period.  Throughout the tour the squad of 25 undertook a physical exercise set by a military instructor including log races, assault courses, interval runs and other physical challenges followed by playing up to four games of hockey a day; pushing the ladies to their physical and mental limits. 

Because of people like Hawkinsport, we will endeavor to progress forward as an organization. Hawkinsport are a family run business that we’ve had links to for many years, so this collaboration is very fitting for the next exciting step for Hockey for Heroes.
— Joel Forrester, Managing Director, Hockey for Heroes.
