The Ice Hockey Players Benevolent Fund
(IHPBF) was formed in February 1996 by representatives of various bodies and
concerned parties within the ice hockey community.
Its aims are to give financial relief to any player, coach or
official who is unable to earn a living due to illness or injury. This
covers all players, coaches and officials who have been registered to play
in Great Britain during their career. The relief given can be paid as a
gift or as a loan for individuals who are awaiting injury claims.
Funds are raised through raffles, memorabilia auctions and other events.
IHPBF mans a fund raising stand at most ice hockey finals tournaments.
