‘Coming soon: new pitch at Robert Smyth Academy’

Published by Jo Bevan on

We checked out the new pitch this week, and it’s almost ready for us to use!

We’ll soon be sending out details of our training sessions at Robert Smyth Academy.



MHHC Pitch Fund

Over the past few years MHHC has worked closely with Robert Smyth Academy to help fund the new pitch. In July 2019 the Club was awarded a grant of £40,000 from the National Hockey Association towards the cost of the pitch, and as part of the conditions of the grant the Club has been asked to contribute an additional £20,000 to the project.

This is an enormous amount for MHHC to raise, especially as the Club has been unable to host fundraising events during the pandemic. To help raise the required funds we set up a crowdfunding page on the JustGiving website for donations to the MHHC Pitch Fund. 

To date, we have raised over £13,500 of the required £20,000. If you would like to donate to the MHHC Pitch Fund, please click here to see our JustGiving page.
