Peter prepares for charity boxing match

Our business manager has been preparing for a First Class White Collar Boxing event which will support a major regional children’s charity.

More than 800 people are expected to attend when Peter Lefley, 44, fights to fundraise for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice this Saturday (9 June) at the Magna Centre in Rotherham – and needs your support to reach his fundraising total!

Peter is raising money for Bluebell Wood via a JustGiving page – for more information or to donate, follow this link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/peter-lefley.

He’s getting fighting fit at the renowned gym run by Sheffield boxing legend Ryan Rhodes, 26RR Fitness, in Sheffield city centre, as well as with training and coaching sessions led by close friend at JT Health and Fitness, Jordan Tunnicliffe.

Peter and Jordan have completed extreme fundraising activities together previously – most notably in 2016 when they ran the Hull Humber Bridge Half Marathon, raising more than £4,000 for terminally-ill youngster Harrison Parker to visit Disneyland.

The pair also took part in the Yorkshire Tough Mudder in 2017 to raise funds for Help The Heroes, which supports the British Armed Forces. Both Jordan and Peter are always looking for new ways to help local charities and this is another great challenge.

Peter’s latest venture will support Bluebell Wood, a charity which is a long-standing beneficiary of fundraising efforts by John Holland and its staff.

John Holland and Supercar Driver – the nation’s leading supercar owners club – are among those to have pledged their support to Peter’s challenge.

Peter said: “It’s tough, but it’s good and it’ll raise a lot of money for a great cause.

“Training’s been hard, exhausting and tiring but I’ve not got any black eyes yet! I’m really enjoying it.

“I’m getting help from plenty of people including John Holland, JT Health & Fitness, Kettle Black, TRIB3 Meadowhall and many more – I’m so grateful for all the donations we’ve received so far.

“Also, I’ve always been a boxing fan and wanted to take part in a fight myself, so for me this is a dream come true.

“It’s also a fantastic opportunity to raise money for an outstanding cause in Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. Over the years, John Holland has supported Bluebell Wood countless times through events and fundraising initiatives, and I wanted to go the extra mile.”
