Lyn Chapman, Centre Manager at Basepoint Swindon was the VIP guest of Swindon’s ice hockey team, the Swindon Wildcats at their match against the Manchester Phoenix recently.

Lyn commented “It was a really fun evening with a very fast paced game, and the icing on the cake was that the Swindon Wildcats won. I didn’t expect to be presented with Nicky’s shirt which was a real surprise, unfortunately, I now have to wash it!”
