The Presidents Sporting Club hits its target by raising 1.5m
THE PRESIDENTS Sporting Club and Essex Disabled Sports Foundation held a fundraising boxing evening at the Manor of Groves Hotel near Stansted Airport recently. A host of sporting celebrities supported the event including Sir Henry Cooper, Frank Bruno MBE, Steve Collins, John Conteh, Graham Gooch OBE, Eamonn Martin and Charlie Magri.
The charity has now raised more than 1.5m, which has been donated to local schools and organisations to provide sporting facilities and opportunities for disabled children in the area. Taking part in sport increases childrens self confidence, physical development and self esteem and helps them meet challenges that they may face later in life.
