Charity Fight Night raises hundreds for hospice care

Tuesday 18 February 2020

Las Vegas came to Lancing Leisure Centre on Saturday 8 February with a Charity Fight Night raising £383.76 for St Barnabas House.

Hosted by Shaun Brown Boxing Academy, the evening kicked off with demonstration bouts from young Academy members, aged 11, progressing through to competitive heavyweight bouts with the adults – a total of 9 fights.Shaun Brown Boxing Academy members at Charity Fight Night

The community event was well attended with MC Ben Franco keeping the crowd on tenterhooks.

Shaun Brown said: “I wanted to raise money for St Barnabas as everybody knows someone who’s benefitted from the services they offer and it’s great that we, the local community, came together to give something back for all they have done and continue to do for our loved ones.

“My Dad, Dave Brown, enjoys coming to the Day Hospice and feels well supported. He also enjoys taking part in the St B’s Schools Project which brings in local school children to learn about hospice care.

“My boxing events are important to me as my Dad was recognised with a long service award for his contribution to boxing and I want to continue that legacy. All of the boxers taking part showed good shape and composure, it was great to see their hard work in training come together in the ring.

“Thank you to everyone who helped make the event a success. I’m indebted to Councillor Debbie Kennard for her help on the night and her continued support.”

Claudia Pearce, Community Fundraising Officer at St Barnabas House, said: “Attending the event was such fun. It was humbling to receive so many generous donations from the crowd in support of the hospice. Huge thanks to Shaun and his team – he put on a brilliant show and made the evening a huge success.”

A raffle in aid of St Barnabas House raised £383.76 for the hospice, bringing Shaun’s total fundraising from his past four charity events to an incredible £1,543. This is enough to cover the costs of six visits to the Day Hospice for a patient like Shaun’s father.
