Whitby District Lions support Whitby Boxing Club

After another highly successful boxing night organised by the Whitby Boxing Club in partnership with the Whitby District Lions a cheque was handed over to Stewart Lorains of the Whitby Boxing Club by Lion Bob Stevens during a recent training session at the club’s gym in Church Street Whitby. The event raised £3,000 + for the Boxing Club & £700+ for Whitby Lions Charities.

This was the fourth in a string of annual events, which started in 2014 when Whitby District Lions got involved with the then fledgling Whitby Boxing Club to raise money to fund a location and to provide much needed equipment to get the boxing club off the ground.

The boxing club, as a result of their fund raising efforts including jointly with Lions now have their own gym which provides a safe place for young people to go to learn a new skill and to socialise off the streets.

In the first year all monies raised went to the boxing club, subsequent years have seen the bulk of the monies raised going to the boxing club and approx 20% going to Whitby District Lions Charities.
