Nottingham Roller Derby team The Hellfire Harlots have joined forces with EyeBlack to raise money for Cerebral Palsy Sport. The Hellfire Harlots are the first roller derby team in Europe to get there own custom EyeBlack which premiered at their first international bout against Sweden’s Crime City Rollers on 21st April.
Traditional grease-based eye black was originally worn by players to reduce the glare caused by floodlights and the sun. EyeBlack developed their own eye black which consists of latex free tape allowing for easy removal and customisation. Now fans have the chance to show support for their team by wearing EyeBlack featuring their team’s logo.
Each pack contains two sets of EyeBlack and costs £3 with all of the proceeds going to CP Sport.
Laura Mcaleer of the Hellfire harlots has said ’We are proud to support Cerebral Palsy Sport and their excellent work improving the lives of people with disabilities through sport. The Hellfire Harlots believe that sport enriches the lives of all who take part and we would like to thank EyeBlack and Roke Consulting for enabling us to raise funds for such an important charity.’
