Over 230 boxing fans attended a knockout dinner. The event, which raised about £5,000 split between Clayton Boxing Club and the hospice attracted amateur boxers from youngsters to adults.
Participants fought it out in 15 bouts of boxing, with each winner receiving a trophy.
John Brindle, secretary, matchmaker and head coach at Clayton Boxing Club said: “It takes a lot of guts to get in the ring, let alone in front of an audience of over 200. All the boxers did a brilliant job and should be very proud. Everybody had a fantastic night and we’ve already had enquiries about next year. It will become an annual event and details will be released soon.”
The next formal event for the hospice will be their annual glittering ball on November 28 at the Dunkenhalgh. Tickets are £50 and can be reserved by calling Sharon on 01254 733410.
