Fife Flyers have raised just short of £2000 for good causes in the Kindom.

The club’s online ‘Shirt Off The Back’ raffle ran over two weeks with players’ shirts up for grabs.

James Isaacs’ (inset) shirt raised £1,259 for the NHS Fife Endowment Fund and went to Marion Watterston, while Sam Jones’ shirt, won by Chris Page, raised £731 for CHAS.

The club hopes to announce the final shirt auction of this year by the end of the week, featuring Challenge Cup tops which would’ve been auctioned in the rink at the first game that was cancelled.

All funds from this auction will go to straight to the team.

The club is taking active steps to stay engaged with the Flyers community whilst the Fife Ice Arena remains in lockdown.

It kicked off with #WallpaperWednesday on social media, a chance for Flyers fans to get their own bespoke wallpaper for their mobile devices, and got such a positive response that the club now plans to run it through the summer with new wallpapers to download each Wednesday featuring key players from Flyers history.

The club is also running the weekly online #FlyersAtHome where every Mondays young Flyers fans are given tasks to complete, such as pictures to colour in.
