SOLIHULL Mayor Mike Robinson has been announced as the Guest of Honour at the annual Rotary Club of Solihull St Alphege Charity Boxing Evening.

Together with Rotary Club President, Nav Sharma (Pictured) they are appealing to the leaders of large, medium and small organisations to offer their show of support to one of the main and longest standing social events in the annual Solihull community calendar.

The Rotary Club of Solihull St Alphege has organised this event continuously for over 30 years and have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for various charities.

The forthcoming event will be held, as usual, at the National Motorcycle Museum in Bickenhill on Friday, March 3.

Hundreds of local men and women from a variety of enterprises and organisations will be attending.

All the proceeds will be donated to local and Rotary charities.

President Nav Sharma has nominated Marie Curie Hospice, in Solihull, along with Solihull Young Carers as the main beneficiaries.

The occasion provides an opportunity to entertain business customers, associates, colleagues or personal friends and will be an all ticket dinner jacket (black tie) and evening dress event.

Rotarian Nav Sharma said: “Many tickets have already been ordered. We are also receiving enquiries for sponsorship and advertising. My advice is to place your orders quickly, before the opportunities are missed.”

The Rotary movement is a worldwide association of over 1.2m Rotarians who provide service to the community at local, national and international level. It encourages high ethical standards and works for goodwill and peace in the world.

Tickets for the Boxing event are available from Rotarian Stewart Hawkins, 5 The Willows, 37 Avenue Road, Dorridge, Solihull B93 8LA or by email at [email protected].

Alternatively, you can telephone Rotarian David Caldicott on 0121 705 8912.

Tables of ten cost £400, while individual tickets may also be purchased for £40 (this includes the cost of a 3 course meal).

A souvenir programme will be produced and distributed on the evening, with advertisements costing between £75 and £200.

Bouts may also be sponsored by businesses and organisations for £50.

Stewart and David are also the contacts for these.

There will be a Super Raffle on the evening as well as a draw for an immediate £1,000 cash prize.
