What is crowdfunding?

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.


We are hosting a charity boxing, bidding and boogying event at the Winter Gardens in Margate in February 2019.

We will raise money for Caring 4 Connor and The Alfie Gough Trust, two local charities that have touched the hearts of many people in Thanet and the surrounding areas .

In 2013, Connor Olsen was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a genetic disorder characterised by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness, resulting in progressively worsening mobility which will likely see Connor and other sufferers being restricted to a wheelchair before their mid teens, with a significantly reduced life expectancy. Caring4Connor was created as a platform for family, friends and supporters who want to help Connor, raise awareness and ultimately find a cure for DMD. Connor's story has captured the hearts of many in East Kent and the surrounding areas, with evermore people urging themselves to be active in the campaign to fight this disease. More information on Connor's journey and many fundraising events can be found at

Alfie's story began at only 8 weeks old where his parents noticed a lump in Alfie's groin following nappy rash. After an initial inaccurate diagnosis, Alfie was admitted to Great Ormond Street where he underwent surgery to remove more lumps. Alfie was then began chemotherapy and his parents believed their life could continue. However in late 2009, Alfie was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive cancer. Alfie underwent 7 more months of treatment however sadly, at 10am on the 29th of July 2010, Alfie lost his battle and passed in the arms of his mum and dad. Since then his parents have continued to raise money to help fund research and treatment for other children with cancer and other serious diseases. More information on Alfie's journey, the charity's vision and more can be found at

Matt and I (Ryan), both as parents with families of our own have been touched by both stories and would like to help. We also want to punch each other in the face, so what better way to combine our ambitions than a boxing event!

Please help us raise money to cover costs, allowing proceeds from the evening to be donated in their entirety to these fantastic causes.

    Hi all Sorry for the delayed update but many of you will have seen the Facebook post. Dreamland have decided they do not want to host the event. As a result we will move the venue and date. We are in discussions with the Winter Gardens and are just waiting to confirm a date. We are aiming for early Feb 2019. We will not be defeated!! Many thanks to all our sponsors and supporters. The show will go on! More updates to follow. 🥊🥊
