Rookie Ice Fern gets creative with fundraising for Spain 2018

Hockey is an expensive sport and for a small country like New Zealand, some athletes will need to fundraise so they can cover the travel costs associated with the International Ice Hockey Federation tournaments that are often held outside of the country.

Such is the case for Fuchsia Davidson, who has been selected as part of the New Zealand Ice Fernz squad for the 2018 IIHF Women’s Div2B World Championship in Valdemoro, Spain. The tournament takes place March 17-23, but before she can get there, Fuchsia is getting creative to raise those much-needed funds.

This Sunday (December 10th) at 12:30pm, the rookie Ice Fern is hosting a special advanced screenings of the latest Woody Harrelson film ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ at Event Cinemas Broadway (Newmarket, Auckland).

If you need another reason to come out, watch the trailer – not only does the film have a stellar cast including Harrelson and Peter Dinklage, but if you have a twisted sense of humour, this could be your favourite movie of the summer season.

According to Flicks, ‘Three Billboards’ won’t be released in New Zealand theatres until January 1st but they’ve already given it a five-star rating, calling it “The rarest of cinematic treats.” So you’re getting to see a good movie early plus you’ll be helping in sending one of Auckland’s young athletes to Spain to represent her country on the ice. It’s win-win!
