On 9th April, Meakins took a table at Fight Night II at the Crowne Plaza Five Lakes Hotel. The evening was jointly sponsored by TEXO Scaffolding of Witham and J.D. Contracts of South Woodham Ferrers, and comprised 12 fights involving amateur boxers from Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk - including 3 County Finals. The event was organised by ARC Promotions and included a three course dinner, live charity auction of sports memorabilia and great raffle for which the top prize was tickets for two at the West End show “The Jersey Boys” plus a night in the 5 star Cumberland Hotel! TEXO Scaffolding’s CEO, Rob Hayward, was sadly unable to attend as he had also secured sponsorship of the Anthony Joshua IBF World Title fight at the 02 on the same night, and it was all the more generous of him therefore to honour his sponsorship of this local event.
The evening was a huge success, with lots of opportunities to network with other businesses, and it was great to see everyone clearly enjoying the night. Lots of money was raised for the two chosen charities for the night - Farleigh Hospice and St John Ambulance - and thanks to further generosity from Rob Hayward the Anthony Joshua fight was screened live in the Crowne Plaza bar. This had the bar full to bursting and was extremely well received by all who managed to squeeze in – just a shame the action was all over in 2 rounds! All in all a great evening’s entertainment and one which Meakins is proud to have been able to support. Plans are already in hand for Fight Night III in October this year and we very much look forward to being there with more Meakins guests.
