News and updates
Confirmed - Charity Boxing Evening on 15th May 2020
Our annual charity boxing evening is held in conjunction with England Boxing South (formerly ABA) and is a fully licenced amateur boxing event. As in previous years the boxing will be a fiercely fought contest between amateur boxing clubs in Suffolk and those in Tyne & Wear with 10/12 bouts including 3 or 4 title belts being contested.
To complement the boxing there is a sumptuous 3 course meal including rib of beef carved at the table and a good bar and drinks table service
On-the-night fund-raising includes a super raffle, bout predictions and a great auction of sporting memorabilia. We are also extremely grateful to our sponsors who help make the event possible.
This year our main beneficiary will be St Elizabeth Hospice who will take 50% of the profits from the event with Rotary Charities retaining 50%, all of which will be spent in Felixstowe and immediate area.
The forgotten beneficiaries are the boxers themselves who benefit so much from their sport which teaches respect, discipline and achievement and for some of the boxers it may be the first time they have performed in front of such a large audience
The cost this year is £600 for a table of 10 (£1,100 for a Premier Ringside Table) and you can book/reserve your table by following the attached link or contacting Mandy Tyler firstname.lastname@example.org or 01473659777. We are restricted to 30 tables so don’t delay!
2020 Boxing Night now planned for Friday 15 May
We look forward to another great night of boxing, feasting and fundraising.

Best Ever Boxing Night - 17th May 2019
Rotary’s charity boxing dinner at Brackenbury Sports Centre was our most successful ever raising over £11,000 for local causes. Once again we had some of the best amateur boxers from Tyne Tees and Weir competing against a home side from the Eastern Counties, but this year we were also able to welcome a contingent of Dutch boxers to give the event an international flavour.
There was a full card of fourteen bouts with the team contest ending in a well-fought draw and four challenge belts fought for. A notable contender was Rio Gordon of Harwich Boxing, the welterweight national semi-finalist and the central champion, who put on a tremendous display in claiming his belt.
Thanks to all for supporting this event and particularly our main sponsors Aquabridge Law.
Below, we see Rotary Club President Mike Watkin welcoming the competitors.
