Olympia London event manager Leeann Cowper, who is a member of Hammersmith-based gym State of Mind Fitness, teamed up with gym owner Barry O’Connell to hold a charity boxing event in aid of the victims of Grenfell Tower fire.
The event, called UNITY, took place on 15 September at Olympia.
Cowper commented: “A month later I am still astonished by the support given to Barry and me for UNITY, both in the lead-up and on the night. Whether it was a donation of services, money or a raffle prize, coming along, or simply a message of support, the success of the night was a true testament to the sheer generosity of our industry.
“To have raised such an incredible amount of money for people who have faced tragedy beyond what most of us can comprehend is an honour and my biggest thanks goes to those who helped us to make our vision a reality.”
