Charity Sparathon 8 February 2014

Tony Oakey sparathon raises cash for Jack – Portsmouth News

Our Club hosted a Charity Sparathon in aid of Jacks Wishes.

This was the idea of Tony Oakey, Tony contacted the Club and between us we put on a fundraising event at short notice at our Gym.  Tony offered to spar any person willing to make a donation to Jacks Wishes.  Throughout the day Tony completed over 60 rounds of sparring and our gym was full of generous spectators and competitors.  Many of our own Club Boxers took part in training activities and the sparring.  Club Coaches and Committee Members gave up their time to ensure the Event ran smoothly.

We would like to convey our thanks to everyone who supported this Event and for giving so generously.  We raised a fantastic  total, £5000, which was presented to Jack’s family.
