A huge thank you from everyone at the Eagles goes to all of our fans for their generosity and support with the charity appeals we backed in the run-up to Christmas.

We asked you for donations of food, gifts and toys for those less fortunate and we were overwhelmed with what we collected on game nights proving what we already knew to be true, we have the best fans in the BBL.

The Christmas food-drive received lots of much needed items for the Walker and District Foodbank, weighing in at almost 200kg, and we also handed over £400 worth of toys were given to Metro Radio’s Cash For Kids’ Mission Christmas appeal this year too. That was even more than last year and both organisations wanted us to pass on a huge thank you to everyone who donated.

Here is wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you at our big rematch game against the Leicester Riders on Friday 12 January.
