The inaugural Lighthouse Club Charity Boxing Gala took place in May this year in the glamourous setting of the London Hilton on Park Lane.
The fabulous evening of construction versus construction boxing action, comedy and fine dining also featured special guest, Sky Sports ‘Mr Boxing’, Johnny Nelson and would not have been possible without the support of our main sponsor DRS Bond Management, alongside Coinford, Gallagher Group and media partner the Irish Post.
Construction companies represented in the ring on the night included Laing O’Rouke, Thorn Plant Hire and O’Donovon Waste Disposal, and all in the crowd contributed to the vibrant and boisterous atmosphere.
Over one hundred thousand pounds was raised on the night and Lighthouse Club would like to thank all who so generously contributed with auction lots and prizes.
One highlight on the night was a special auction lot, of Anthony Joshua signed memorabilia, which raised over five thousand pounds (a figure matched by the Lighthouse Club) specifically for Dale Youth boxing club, which formally called Grenfell Tower home, before the devastating fire there in 2017.
Dale Youth ABC has recently been the subject of an episode of DIY:SOS relating to the building of their new gym, near Ladbroke Grove; Lighthouse Club chairman Cormac MacCrann, CEO Bill Hill, and trustee Lyndsey Gallagher recently made the trip to see the club’s new home and to present head coach Mick Delaney with a cheque for the amount raised for them on at the Lighthouse Club Charity Boxing Gala.
We are delighted to confirm that the second instalment of Lighthouse Club Charity Boxing Gala will take place on 7th May 2020 at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
The Lighthouse Club Charity would like to thank everybody who contributed to the fundraising on the night, and we look forward to seeing you at our next event.
