Boxing legend in knockout night of fun to aid Keighley special school appeal
10:00am Monday 11th March 2013 in Keighley
Legendary boxer Frank Bruno has given some heavyweight support to the Phoenix School appeal.
The popular former world champion spoke at a special fundraising evening about his life inside and outside the ring.
He also posed for photos and signed autographs during Saturday’s event at Octagon Live in Sandbeds.
A sell-out audience of 300 attended.
“Frank loved it and said the crowd was amazing,” said a spokesman for Bingley-based MJK Sports Events, which organised the night.
“We stage sports events for different clubs and charities and I know a couple of people with children at Phoenix School, who mentioned the minibus appeal. It seemed a great cause to support.”
The event, which is expected to coin in at least £2,000 once all monies have been collected, also featured Halifax-based comedian Lee Roberts, a three-course meal and auction.
Master of ceremonies was Sky Sports’ Paul Booth.
