Boxers take a dive [sky that is]
Many boxers have entertained us over the decades, and many now need our help in hard times. All in our sport will be aware of former boxers who struggle mentally, physically and socially, and as fans we all have a responsibility. 2019 is our opportunity to raise funds for the Ringside Rest & Care Home, 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 team of us, including current and former professional boxers Dave Birmingham, Joel McIntyre, Chris Hobbs, Jeff Ofori, Brad and Ashley Pauls ,top female prospect Lucy Wildheart and others to be confirmed will be undertaking a three mile high skydive on Saturday 1st June at GoSkyDive on Salisbury Plain to raise as much as we can to help this very valuable project, one that is very close to our hearts. The boxers and myself are covering the cost of the skydive ourselves, so every single penny raised without exception goes to the cause. It will be a very unique event, professional and former boxers all jumping out of a plane together to help our own, and we would be very, very grateful if you could donate and support us in our efforts.

Marathon man Ian at it again
Following on from earlier announcement, here is the fundraising page I've just set up. If this can be shared far and wide that would be a massive help. My new employer has a scheme in place to match fundraising by there employees up to £200, so if we can get up to that figure it would be huge.
But in short, come October 4th I will be running 26.2 miles around the Potteries to raise funds for this most worthy and noble cause and any/all support would be massively appreciated. Cheers.
