Weʼre raising £500 to Contribute towards my local law centre: the 170 Community Project!
- London, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Have you ever looked at me and thought: "I'd give anything to watch that guy get punched in the face"? Well, now's your chance!
On September 21st 2018 at 7pm, I will be boxing in a charity white collar boxing event at the Troxy - a 2,000 capacity venue in East London.
The organisation, White Collar Boxing, puts on these events partly as a fundraiser for its own very worthwhile charity, Joni's Army, with the ticket sales of £25 each. However, I appreciate that some people either cannot make the fight, or don't like the idea of watching boxing, but would really like to raise money for a good cause.
That is why I am fundraising separately for my local law centre, the 170 Community Project. 170 has been active in the community for almost 40 years, plugging the gap that exists between the availability of good, free legal advice and the demand for it. It is a highly worthwhile charity doing a difficult job, and I hope you will show your support for it.
So please, whether you can make it to the fight or not, dig deep and let's give a much needed boost to a much needed service!

Hi Ben, I think you're very brave /stupid, but it's for a good cause, so do be careful. I wouldn't want one of my favourite nephews to get badly hurt. Xx

About the fundraiser
I've been a Trustee for 170 for over a year and really believe in the work it does: using the law to better people's lives. I've also been interested in boxing for a little while; I'm rubbish, to be honest.
