‘Rumble with the Agents’ to raise funds for Inclusion Barnet
Em Morley - January 31, 2020
Planning for this year’s Rumble with the Agents, a charity fundraiser hosted by Landlord Action and sponsored by Hamilton Fraser, is now underway.
The focus of this annual white-collar charity boxing event is to raise funds for Inclusion Barnet, a charity that provides vital support for those with a disability, including mental health issues and/or long-term health conditions.
Paul Shamplina, one of the key founders of Landlord Action, set the event up six years ago, running it alongside his wife Rita. He is now looking for ten individuals from the property sector to get involved and try their hand at boxing. Anyone interested should sign up by 7th February.
It’s free to take part and includes a fully structured and supervised boxing training program to ensure optimum physical fitness and teach participants the correct techniques will be provided by JA Boxing in north London.
Participants are not required to have any previous experience, just a desire to learn a new skill, get fit in three months and support an excellent local charity!
More information about Inclusion Barnet
Inclusion Barnet is a Deaf and Disabled People’s Organisation (DDPO), which means that their staff and trustees have lived experience of disability, including mental health issues and long-term conditions. They use their lived experience to raise awareness and educate society about the barriers faced by disabled people and how people can work together to remove those barriers.
Those living with a disability often find it very hard to access the services and resources they need to help them live the life they want to live, which is where Inclusion Barnet provides vital support.
Commenting on the upcoming event, Paul Shamplina says: “As many people know, I’ve been a keen boxer for many years. Boxing not only helps me keep fit, it’s a stress reliever, motivator, confidence builder and has taught me discipline.
“I know an increasing number of boxing clubs are doing an outstanding job to ensure that the experiences they offer are fully inclusive, and that is why we feel that this year’s charity is a perfect fit for Rumble with the Agents 2020.”
There will be five fights throughout the evening, which will each consist of three two-minute rounds. There will also be a three-course Neal, charity auction and raffle.
The event has raised a total of £93,000 to date for various charities. It’s open to agents, property professionals, suppliers and landlords and will take place on Thursday 21st May 2020. It will be held at Holiday Inn, Avenue Banqueting, 58 Regents Park Road, London, N3 3JN.
