Financial support keeps team on ice

Havering Council has announced it was only too happy too help support the Romford Raiders, now known as London Raiders since their move to the Lee Valley Ice Centre, by providing financial support.

The club has suffered some setbacks after the closure of the ice rink in Rom Valley Way and the Council is offering funding to keep the team playing in the National League, so the sport can thrive when the new leisure centre opens.

The Raiders have committed to returning to Romford when this happens and the Council will provide up to £7,500 over the next year to ensure ice skaters and ice hockey players from Havering continue to have a future in their chosen sport.

Councillor Melvin Wallace, Cabinet Member Culture and Community Engagement, said: “We’re happy to give the Raiders some financial support to help ensure they remain in business until the new ice rink opens in Romford.

“We want to ensure the continued development of ice hockey through the team, and their move back to the new ice rink in Romford is crucial to the future success of the sport in the borough, and the new facility.”
