Boxers raise £1,500 for charity’s ‘vital’ work

Have your say

AN annual charity boxing night attracted more than 300 guests and raised £1,500 for St Nicholas Hospice Care, in Bury St Edmunds.

The event, organised by Stowmarket and District Lions Club and Eastgate Boxing Club, was held last month with guests enjoying a three-course meal, boxing matches and a charity auction.

Sue Long, hospice community fund-raiser, received the cheque last Saturday and thanked the groups for the donation. She said the funds are ‘vital to our work’.
