Ringside Charitable Trust
Ringside Rest and Care
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 🥊🥊🥊
