A charity boxing match which was held at Olympia London to raise funds for victims of the Grenfell Tower tragedy has raised £32,000. The event was organised by charity UNITY.
Leeann Cowper, event manager at Olympia London and organiser of UNITY, said: “A month later I am still astonished by the support given to Barry and me for UNITY, both in the lead-up and on the night. Whether it was a donation of services, money or a raffle prize, coming along, or simply a message of support, the success of the night was a true testament to the sheer generosity of our industry. To have raised such an incredible amount of money for people who have faced tragedy beyond what most of us can comprehend is an honour and my biggest thanks goes to those who helped us to make our vision a reality.”
