Giving with purpose, bid on a Cardiff Devils' signed ice-hockey stick
Thanks to the generosity of 7-year-old ice-hockey enthusiast Thomas Gallienne and his mum Sarah, (who also happens to work for Ategi) we are running our first-ever charity auction featuring a Cardiff Devils signed ice-hockey stick!
This isn't your run-of-the-mill hockey stick. This is a piece of Cardiff Devils' history. Once wielded by Devils goalie Ben Bowns, this stick has found a new purpose. The Cardiff Devils have graciously donated it to help Thomas and Sarah fundraise for Ategi. But what makes it truly exceptional is that it has the signatures of 12 Cardiff Devils team members, including Joshua Batch, Sam Duggan, Trevor Cox, and more. A collector's dream come true!
For nearly 30 years, Ategi has been empowering adults with complex needs to identify and achieve their goals, guiding them to live life on their terms. All proceeds from this auction will directly contribute to the vital care and support Ategi provides to adults with additional needs, physical disabilities, addictions, and mental health challenges.
Young Thomas dreams of becoming a pro ice hockey player and playing for the Devils when he grows up. His mum, Sarah, a devoted Cardiff Devils supporter and a member of the Ategi team for almost two years, shares, "I have seen how Ategi makes a big difference in people’s lives, and I wanted to not only raise funds but also to help raise the profile of the fantastic work that Ategi does and the amazing people we support."
