The 33rd annual charity boxing dinner – again sponsored by Bognor Regis Rotary Club –will be held at Centre Stage, Butlin’s, next Thursday (November 24).

It’s almost a sell-out but there are two tables of 10 at £50 per person available, plus non dining tickets at £10 each for sale at JW Sports in the High Street or at the main gate on the evening.

There’ll also be an auction of boxing memorabilia such as boxing gloves signed by Marvin Hagler, John H Stracey and John Conteh.

Some changes to the black-tie event have been brought in by organiser David Dear.

It’s an ABA inter-counties match between Sussex and Kent, featuring a comedian and a raffle. There will be special effects, lighting and sound and a four-course meal.
