Charity Boxing Dinner
Our 33rd Charity Boxing Dinner was held on Friday 6th March 2020 at the National Conference Centre next to the Motorcycle Museum.
We were honoured to have Solihull Deputy Mayor Flo Nash in attendance and also our District Governor Elect Tim Bushell. The event was a great success with twelve bouts between boxers from Solihull ABC vs "the Rest of the World". the boxing was excellent with plenty of action! We managed to raise in excess of £5,500 for the year's charities which include Acorns Childrens Hospice, UK Sepsis Trust and numerous other local charities and Club initiatives.
In the past 30 years, through this event, we have raised over £300,000 for local charities.
STOP PRESS. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we have decided that it will not be practical for us to run the next event in 2021 however normal service is expected to resume in 2022. Thank you for your understanding.
Our main charities for the year are UK Sepsis Trust and Acorns Children’s Hospice
