Raising Funds for Cancer Research
On Saturday 31st March Richard Nuttall boxed at a charity function for Cancer Research through the Ultra White Collar Boxing promotions. After eight weeks of training at the gym Richard went on to fight at the Baths Hall in front of 1000 people.
BAPP kindly sponsored the vest and shorts helping Richard follow in the footsteps of Glyn Sparks and Adam Reeve who have previously participated in this event.
Stopped in the third round after a heavy body shot which Richard confesses is still feeling to this day, Richard was proud to take part and enjoyed every minute even after enduring the gruelling training. A great experience which managed to raise around £700 for Cancer research. Well Done!

Helping Raise Awareness
One of our Directors Michael Elliott slept on the street for the homeless charity Framework.
The event was in Nottingham and involved sleeping on a cardboard box from around 10pm until 6am. This was to give people the real experience of been homeless and to help raise money for the charity.
Michael had this to say ”It was very cold and it really made you understand the harsh conditions of the street. Anyone could survive a night but the thought of having to wander round all day trying to find food and shelter and then do it all again the next night and so on and so on was very humbling and daunting. Luckily at 6am we could go home!”
