More than 300 people turned out in force at Vic’s Gym, in Phorpres Way for a special Charity Boxing Night, delivered by local business Mick George Ltd.
The occasion saw employees from various divisions within the company go head-to- head in seven separate encounters.
Colleagues, family, friends and associates, loudly and enthusiastically expressed their support.
For the past 10 weeks, the fighters have been put through their paces in preparation for the evening, by gym owner Vic Imbriano and fellow mentor and ex-professional boxer, Tommy Martin.
The main boxing action was reinforced with other fundraising activities, which altogether generated thousands-of-pounds that will be distributed to the business’ charity partners.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd. commented: “Historically we’ve hosted some fantastic charity events, but this was the first of this kind.’’
