The Ringside Charitable Trust

No; 1185462

Ringside Rest and Care



OUR AIM

For many years concern has been expressed for the countless boxing personnel who find themselves suffering from depression, alcohol dependency, injuries and illnesses attributed to boxing. Ringside Charitable Trust, hope to change the way we care for our boxing family. The vision for the home is to include medical help, facilities for ex boxers to be cared for both short and long term, a cinema room for the boxers to watch films of their old fights and a non alcoholic bar where they can sit together and reminisce. There is initial funding in place but the cost of sustaining the home is estimated at £1.5 million per year. Many boxers have entertained us over the decades, and many now need our help in hard times. This is our opportunity to raise funds for The Ringside Charitable Trust, a fantastic project to establish a thirty-six bed residential care facility which will be of enormous benefit to those who sadly have no means of support in dark times.

A message from Dave Harris Chairman & Trustee 

Hi everyone I hope you are all keeping fit and well and staying safe as some of you will know we are now into stage 3 and are starting to identify areas in the country which will be suitable for the Ringside Charitable Trust care home and now the hard work starts once again we are working towards an application for lottery funding for 3 million pounds .One of the areas which we are closely looking at is in the Northampton and Gloucestershire areas if you haven't yet pledged £5 a month please do so it's not a lot but it will make such a difference to our boxers who are in such desperate need I would like everyone of you who has stood shoulder to shoulder alongside the wonderful hard-working team that will make Ringside Charitable Trust a reality ,we are still hoping that our launch night may still take place in November and I hope you are all looking forward to making the song Never give up Never give in a Christmas number one which was recorded by some of the biggest names in Boxing so remember the title Never  give up Never give in by the Legends 

Stay safe 🥊🥊🥊

Ralph Oates

I have received this from Ralph Oates,s publisher for discount details on Ralph’s book

Hi Paul, thanks for getting in touch. We can certainly give you the link, but even better, we can give you a discount code (RCT25) which gives your members/contacts a chance to buy Ralph’s book, (or any book on our website) at 25% off the cover price. Not only do they get money off, you get 10% of the RRP for your charity. So for a £15 book, you will get £1.50, and your contacts will get a discount of £3.75.

This is a great opportunity for you to make some serious money for the charity, and also to spread the word about the book and our website. There is no end date on the code (until we both decide to stop it) and it can be used multiple times. The more people know about it, the more money we all make.

Remember it is not just Ralph’s book that can be bought using the code, but any book on our website, and you get 10% of everything.
