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

It’s almost a sell-out already, with just one table to be sold at the time of going to press.

Some changes to the black-tie event have been brought in by organiser David Dear, including a new-look quickfire auction of four or five items, such as boxing gloves signed by Marvin Hagler, John H Stracey and John Conteh.

The lighting, music and layout of the arena have all changed and this year’s event will be a prestigious ABA inter-counties match between Sussex and Kent.

Comedian/magician Mick Travis will be providing entertainment.

There are a limited number of non-dining tickets available from JW Sports in Bognor High Street and some will be for sale on the night but these will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

A bar and food will be available for people buying these tickets.

For table reservations, call David Dear on 07979 363843 or email david.dear@hotmail.com
