SHILLY’S FUNDRAISING

The big fight was on the 11th December and we have a champion!
Here is Shilly’s report and photos have been posted in the Gallery section.

So the big fight arrived last Sunday and wow what an experience it was.
I had to be there for 1pm to have a full medical which would clear us to fight or not.
Then there was a meeting for all the boxers going through the details of the evening’s events and the chance for people to ask questions etc.
It was also announced that I was the highest fundraiser for the event with £1100 to date.
Guests started arriving so we had to go out back and get ready for the fighters parade.
The Red team went out first - the crowd was very loud and the nerves were tingling at this point. Over 800 people in attendance!
Then it was the Blue team’s turn and we came out to a huge ovation. Very surreal!
It was announced to all that I was the group’s top fundraiser and I was presented with a small gift from Cancer Research UK.
Then the wait began before my fight and three and a half hours later it was my turn to fight.
My supporters who came to cheer me on were amazing and I appreciate it so much...they were chanting "Shilly,Shilly,Shilly" which was awesome and helped me on my way to a first round KO when the ref stopped the fight at
1 minute 45 seconds. Q celebrations!
Awesome feeling and a journey I won't forget.
As a group we have raised over £10,000 for cancer research which is amazing and will hopefully help someone in their fight against cancer and beating it for good!
Thank you again to everyone who has donated and purchased raffle tickets (which are still available!) You all deserve a pat on the back as it's you who have given your money to help a very worthy cause!
I'll see a lot of you at the club dinner on Saturday (yay I can eat some decent grub!)
Take care everyone.
Regards
James "The Juice" Shillingford
