£509 DONATION RECEIVED
Over eighty people gathered at St Rumons Club in Redruth to hear from boxing legend Frank Bruno MBE on Friday 22nd November 2019.
The sold-out dinner was organised by Paul Broad, who selected Redruth Charity Trust to benefit from the raffle. £309 was raised for RCT plus a further donation of £200 was made by top sports MC Paul Booth, upon hearing about the charity’s good work in the town.
Paul Broad said:
“Everyone was mesmerised in the presence of such a true British legend. Frank came across as a very humble person and had time to shake hands and take selfies with the guests.”
Frank spoke candidly about his boxing career, life experiences and his ongoing battle with mental illness. In addition to Frank Bruno’s insightful speech, the guests enjoyed comedy from John Lory, and an auction of sports memorabilia by MC Paul Booth.
RCT Chair Chris Hailey said:
“It is an honour for RCT to have been chosen to benefit from this exciting appearance by a sporting legend in our town. I wish to thank Paul Broad, a community legend himself, for making this happen and involving our charity, and huge gratitude to Paul Booth for adding his own donation. As a Sports MC, he must come across many worthy causes around the UK, and I’m delighted that our work left such an impression on him.”
