2017 Christmas Present Drop with PET-Xi

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

It’s the run-up to Christmas and in association 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).

Before Christmas, Scorch, Blaze representitives and members of staff from PET-Xi will be visiting the hospital wards at UHCW to kindly hand over the presents.

Scorch, current Assistant Captain Kevin Noble and former forward Matt Marquardt visit the University Hospital December 2016.

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 – we collected enough of those last weekend in the fantastic Teddy Bear Toss! (Thank you again!)

Pet-Xi will have a table at the game on Saturday, (to the side of the Fanzone) where fans can make donations of presents.


Nationally renowned and winner of the 'Company of the Year' at the 2017 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.

The company is the lead support to our Blaze in the community programme.
