Celebrities from the worlds of television and music, made their way to the Great Room of the five-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Park Lane via the elegant lobby, for the annual white-collar charity boxing event, in aid of Caudwell Children. This national charity, founded by John Caudwell, provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families. Ewing Law was the headline sponsor of the event.
Guests cheered the eight amateur boxers as they stepped into the ring to do battle in four bouts, each consisting of three two-minute rounds. Contestants were kept in order by referee for the evening, John Conteh, the former WBC light-heavyweight World Champion, while Johnny Nelson, the former British boxer who is currently the longest-reigning cruiserweight World Champion, used his incisive knowledge to commentate throughout the evening.
Trudie Beswick, CEO of Caudwell Children, and Associate Director of Events Kerrie Davies, agreed that it was a fantastic evening with some entertaining boxing.
The Float Like A Butterfly Ball raised £403,244, which will help Caudwell Children provide hospital and in-home family support, specialist mobility, sports and sensory equipment, fully supported activity days and life-changing treatments and therapies to disabled children across the UK.
