AMATEUR BOXERS will don their gloves to raise funds for two causes as Solihull Rotary hosts their silver anniversary charity boxing night on Friday, March 4.

Held at the National Motorcycle Museum on the Coventry Road, the evening will raise funds for three individual charities.

Solihull Young Carers, Parkinson’s disease and Rotary’s own End Polio Now Campaign – which has almost removed the fear of the once feared polio disease.

The black tie event is expected to attract 400 people with tickets priced at £40 each – to include a three course meal.

A special super raffle with a guaranteed cash prize of £1,000 will take place and sponsorship opportunities from just £50 are also available.

Last years event raised £12,000 for the British Heart Foundation, and event organiser Stewart Hawkins is keen to add to that sum this year.

He added: “We’re looking to attract local businesses to the event and want to have a good night whilst raising some money for two fantastic charities at the same time.

“The event will start at 7pm and run until 11pm – the two causes are close to the heart of Solihull Rotary so to see a good turnout would be great for not just ourselves but the charities as well.”
