The Link Centre & webuyanycar.com: Free Family Skating

23 November @ 7:15 pm - 1 December @ 9:45 pm


Webuyanycar.com partners with British Ice Skating to give away free ice skating sessions for families across the country

From 22nd November to 5th December 2021, The Link Centre in Swindon will be offering a limited number of free spaces for children and families to try out ice skating courtesy of webuyanycar.com, and free ice skate hire will also be available to all attendees.

The free skating tickets are part of an ongoing partnership between the UK’s go-to online car buying service, webuyanycar.com, and British Ice Skating, which aims to inspire the next generation of ice skating talent and to offer families the opportunity to try a fun activity together, kick starting the festive season.

Eight ice rinks across the UK, will be offering free skating sessions with free skate hire, with 100 places available at The Link Centre.

Richard Evans, head of technical services at webuyanycar.com, said: ‘’We’re thrilled to be able to partner with British Ice Skating again this year and offer free skating sessions for families once again, spreading some festive cheer early this year.

‘’At webuyanycar.com, we understand that people lead busy lives and finding time to enjoy quality time with the family is not always easy. That’s why we strive to offer motorists a quick and hassle-free service to sell their car, so that customers can spend more time doing things they love.’’

Richard added: ‘’Over the years we’ve bought many cars from customers in Swindon, so it’s a pleasure to be giving something back to the community which has continued to support us year on year.’’

This year, the partnership has expanded with a competition that will see one year-long ice skating lessons pass, five six-week introductory courses and 10 ice skating equipment bundles go to 16 lucky children across the country, giving them the resources to take to the ice for longer. The competition winners will be selected by ice skating champion and Dancing On Ice star Alexander Demetriou, alongside a panel from webuyanycar.com and British Ice Skating.

Michelle Draper, CEO of British Ice Skating, said: “At British Ice Skating we strive to ensure that as many people as possible across the UK can enjoy our sport. The partnership between British Ice Skating and webuyanycar.com is a wonderful way to allow families across the country to discover the mental and physical benefits of skating.”

Michelle added: “We hope that those given the chance to feel the joy of gliding on the ice will want to keep returning to their local rink. That’s why we’re thrilled that competition winners will be lucky enough to get a spot on a learn to skate course. We want everyone to skate for fun but there could be a future Olympian about to discover their passion from one of these free sessions.”

Please note, the event is open to children up to 15 years old and assisting adults. Adults may only ice skate if assisting a child. Each attending child and adult must have their own ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult to the ice rink and the responsible adult must stay for the duration of the session. Children do not require an adult to join them on the ice, however, if a child does require support from an adult, it is the parent/carer’s responsibility to arrange this.  Tickets for the event are capped at 100 and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
