Architect and music fan John Edmondson from Salford recently returned from a solo coast to coast bike ride from Morecambe to Bridlington, raising £279 for the club.
He completed the170 mile ride in two days. John describes the first day as “charming” 62 miles with a steep climb from Settle to Brimham Rocks! The second day was “miserable”, it included heavy rain, strong winds and 2 punctures, he finished with plastic bags wrapped round his feet to keep out the driving rain. Fantastic fundraising.
Boxing coaches Russ Arrowsmith and Dave Connell have organised a 4th fight night at the Willows Variety Club in Salford. It’s next Friday 16th July with all proceeds going to Salford Lads’ Club and St Ann’s Hospice.
For the past 6 months the novice boxers have worked along side ex professionals to reach a stage where they can take part in the ring. You might recognise a couple of local lads, both Dayle and Chris featured on the poster have been involved with the club for many years.
If you want to support the event, tickets priced £50 are still available from Russ on 0778911178.
If you can’t make it, you can still make donations to SLGC via papal. Please add the message – White Collar Boxing.
