Boxing Fundraiser for ANUK

Two boxers, one in red, one in blue, fighting in the ring at York Hall, in front of a large crowd.

David Simpson has taken part in the Judgement Day charity boxing contest at the York Hall arena in Bethnal Green, London.

The event itself was raising money for Action for Children, but each boxer could also raise money for the charity of their choice.

David chose Aniridia Network UK as his charity, for which we are very grateful.

He had never been in a boxing match before, and had just 12 weeks of training to prepare. So it was a big challenge. And we’re delighted to report that he won!

David set up a fundraising page for the event with a £250 target. But thanks to the kind donations of over 50 supporters, including a very generous £500 from boxing legend George Groves, the total raised is an amazing £1,866.31!

In a message to his supporters, David said: “I won!! Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me! We have raised a massive amount for Aniridia Network UK and I’m bowled over by your generosity. Please keep spreading the word!! xx”

Many thanks to David for supporting Aniridia Network UK and raising such a fantastic amount of money, and also to everyone who sponsored him.
