Having raised more than £58,000 for local charities across the last three events, ‘Rumble with the Agents’, the white-collar charity boxing event which was set up in 2015 by founder of Landlord Action, Paul Shamplina, will return for a fourth year.
Now a permanent fixture in the property event calendar, the team are once again looking for individuals of all ages and abilities who would like to try their hand at boxing, perhaps challenge themselves to get fit for New Year and help raise money for this year’s chosen charity, Cherry Care Cancer Lodge.
Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is an independent charity committed to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, their carers, family and friends.
The charity works alongside the clinical care of the NHS in an area centred on Barnet and covering much of North London and South Hertfordshire. However, less than 5% of their running costs are covered by NHS and local government grants, meaning they rely predominantly on fundraising, volunteering and donations.
The evening will consist of five fights, which will be three two-minute rounds each, a sit down three-course meal with unlimited drinks, an auction and raffle. Special guests already confirmed for the evening include ex-professional European champion boxer, Spencer Oliver, and EastEnders actor and star of Strictly Come Dancing, Jake Wood.
Participants are not required to have any previous experience as a fully structured and supervised boxing training program will be provided by BOXR in north London, which emerged from a gym where boxing champions such as Anthony Joshua and Derek Chisora learnt their craft. With some places already taken, remaining spaces are on a first come first serve basis.
Paul Shamplina, founder of Landlord Acton, commented: “Boxing has always been a personal passion and a sport I take part in myself to keep fit. I didn’t set out for this to become an annual event, but the support it has received over the years from my industry peers means we have raised an incredible amount of money for local charities in need, and this has cemented my decision to keep making it bigger and better.”
Rumble with the Agents 2018, hosted by Landlord Action and in association with Hamilton Fraser, will take place on Thursday 24th May 2018 at Holiday Inn, Avenue Banqueting, 58 Regents Park Road, London, N3 3JN.
