Former boxing heavyweight champion of the world, Frank Bruno, will be holding an evening of question and answers at the Middleton Cheney Sports and Leisure Centre next year.
The event will be in aid of Ella’s Fund, a charity raising money and awareness for Down Syndrome charities and has been organised by Mark Timms and Neil Markham, whose daughter Ella was born with the condition in 2002.
Host for the evening will be Banbury’s own boxing legend, Dave Earl who said: “I have known Neil for more than a decade. He used to manage a team my son Maxie played for.
“I consequently have known Ella and about the fundraising events they put on for some time. Neil and Mark say they wanted to say thank you to me for what I do in the community with children by asking me to be the one to ask the questions and of course of my boxing background.”
The evening will start at 7pm and will feature a buffet, live music from Backstreet Noise along with the Q&A session.
Tickets can be purchased from Dave Earl’s Spit ‘n’ Sawdust gym on North Bar Street or by visiting the Ella’s Fund Charity Night Facebook page.
