On Thursday, June 22nd a crowd of some 270 landlords, agents, developers, suppliers and industry figures gathered in Finchley to raise in excess of £15,000 during the eighth Rumble with the Agents charity boxing event.
The event featured ten boxers from the estate agency, insurance, and auctions sectors who fought it out in the ring. The boxers had been training for three months in preparation for the event, and the competition was fierce. In the end, it was Matthew Hooker, the son of Hamilton Fraser boss Eddie Hooker, who won the tournament.
The event was a sell-out, and the atmosphere was electric. The boxers put on a great show, and the crowd cheered them on enthusiastically.
In addition to the boxing matches, the event also featured a silent auction and raffle. All proceeds from the event went to Gratitude.
Paul Shamplina, the founder of Landlord Action and host of the event, visited Gratitude in the run-up to the event to learn more about the work that the charity does. He was impressed by the impact that Gratitude is having on the community, and he was proud to be able to support their work through the fundraiser.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to the suppliers and the people who came but especially the boxers who were brave enough to step in the ring – the boxing this year was a very high standard,” said Shamplina. “As it the case every year the atmosphere was incredible, and the event was sold out.”
The team at Gratitude is grateful for the support of Rumble with the Agents and the generous donations that were raised at the event. The money will go towards supporting Gratitude’s work in providing food and other essential items to the local community.
“We are hugely grateful to the property industry for having dug so deep to help our charity,” said Sheila Carlisle, who founded Gratitude with her husband John in 2013. “This money will make a real difference to the lives of many people in our community.”
We are incredibly grateful to Paul Shamplina and the team at Rumble with the Agents for their support. We would also like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers, and attendees who made the event such a success.
A huge thank you to Paul Shamplina for his support of Gratitude and for making this event such a success.
