PIPS Newry & Mourne White Collar Boxing

Thanks to the generous hospitality of Bellini’s Newry on Friday 26th August 2016 PIPS Newry & Mourne hosted an extremely successful White Collar Boxing charity boxing event. Twenty two motivated volunteers, men and women came together twice a week for 12 weeks to train at Fit Club Newry. Fit Club got them pumped and ready for the event. Not only were the boxers getting ready for the event of a lifetime they also had to get raffle prizes donations and get sponsorship.
This event was a sell-out success and raised an amazing £16, 023.81 for the charity a wonderful evening was had by all as all the boxers got into their competitive spirit.
The night would not have been possible without the amazing determination of a great team of boxers, the support of Kat Campbell, the Fit Club team Charlie, Peter, Johnny, Kevin & Cormac. Our gorgeous ring girls Taylor-Rea and Miss Charity Sarah-Jane from Ultimate Beauty of the world, also our interval entertainment The Burlesque Belles, also to the volunteers that helped sell the raffle tickets on the night and the amazing staff in Bellini’s.

‘Fight of the night’ went to Samantha Richardson & Stephanie Turley as both girls deserved the win very much from their 12weeks training there fantastic fundraising to the atmosphere on the night.
