The directors of a local gym Body Carnegie Centre organised a charity boxing match which raised over £5,000 for local good causes.

Director Ricky Stables organised the event along with Kev Stables and Paul Cadman who all felt passionate about fundraising for Neurocare.

Ricky said “Neurocare helped me just a little over 2 years ago and also helped 4 of my close friends. They are amazing and deserve every penny.”

Ricky and his two friends Tony Howley and sister Donna all experienced treatment in Sheffield’s Teaching Hospitals after scans showed that they each had tumours.

Many years have now passed where they have hosted many funding events; cycling and running to show their support for the charity and staff that helped them through a very difficult time in their lives.

The event was attended by hundreds of local people raising £5,000. Half of this fantastic amount was kindly donated to us at Neurocare whilst the other was donated to the gym to build a new roof.

Thank you so much for your continued support, we’re extremely appreciative of every penny raised.

This event could not have happened without so many people so the gyms directors would like to say a huge thank you to all involved (Coaches Neil Jones, Terry Howley, Tony Howley, Joseph Webb, DJ Mark Chappel, boxers Martin Suggett, Danny Mcgarigle, Fiona Hinchcliffe, Chloe Emma, Wayne Blyth, Gareth Hirst, Rich Cutts, Dan Whitehead, Liam cook, Rob Seeds, John Weaver, Macaulay Irvine and Referee ex pro boxer Steven hale.
