Ballysillan Presbyterian Church BB was recently visited by ice hockey star Jeffery Szwez of the LBM Belfast Giants, as part of the Giants’ Companies That Care Initiative.
As well as spending time with over 40 of the young people who attend the BB each week, Jeff talked with them about how he came to be a Belfast Giant, what he likes most about living in Belfast and it’s people, and answered the many more questions they had about his experience of school and passion for ice hockey. Jeff then spent the remainder of the evening playing uni-hockey and football with the teenagers and learning more about the things they enjoy and challenges they face growing up. Some of the young people even had their own ice skates, and Jeff advised them on how to work to develop their skills and experience on the ice.
As part of the ‘Companies That Care’ initiative Stenaline provide tickets for the young people to come along to a game, Jeff is looking forward to see the boys at a game some time soon, and maybe even joining them on the ice at some stage!
