The South Wye Police Boxing Academy, led by Vince McNally and Tony Chadwick, laid on this evening in aid of charity. Although the Academy is based at the Hinton Community Centre in Hereford, the dinner was held at Hereford Sixth Form College. The supported charity was the Hereford Sixth Form College’s Hardship Fund, to support students who cannot get funding from elsewhere either for their course or for materials or educational trips.
The gym was packed with supporters of the boxers from home and away for 11 bouts each with a generous sponsor. BMW Cotswold Hereford were the main sponsor of the event.
The atmosphere was very friendly and I now know more about boxing but I am glad that I am too old to take it up.
