Boxing evening raises thousands for charity

Businesspeople from across Gloucestershire watched some fantastic boxing, while raising thousands of pounds for charity last week.

The Rotary Club's 33rd annual charity boxing evening featured 12 bouts. Members of Gloucestershire Amateur Boxing Club boxed with their peers from clubs from as far afield as Cornwall and Wales.

The youngest boxers were doing skilled training, while the older participants got the chance to show their skills and fight. Safety of all the boxers was paramount and the crowd really appreciated their skill.

The audience also enjoyed a set by comedian, Bob Webb.

The event at Sir Thomas Rich's School was sponsored by long-term main sponsors Keyway and Brunsdon Insurance Brokers Ltd. Some of the bouts were sponsored by Alpha Colour Printers and Heritage & Wise.

The Rotary Club gives proceeds from the evening to local charities, including the boxing club. It raises around £6,000 a year from the event and is thought to have raised £165,000 over the last 33 years.

Punchline says: "Once again, the Rotary Club has done a fantastic job in raising money for local charities. They couldn't have done it without the support of the volunteers and their main sponsors, Brunsdon Insurance Brokers Ltd and Keyway."
