The property industry's Rumble with the Agents charity event is to host its eighth evening of boxing and fund-raising in North London on Thursday 22nd June, it has been announced.
Founder Paul Shamplina (pictured), Chief Commercial Officer for Hamilton Fraser, is looking for male and female agents, landlords, developers, property managers or suppliers ready to step into the ring.
'It's early in the year and many people are looking to lose weight and get fit so this is a perfect opportunity to do that during the training and also raise cash for charity,'� he says.
Held at the banqueting suite at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Finchley, the event will raise money for Gratitude, a Hertfordshire food charity based in Borehamwood, near to the HQ offices of Hamilton Fraser.
It takes food that's good to eat but can't be sold in shops because of packaging errors or overproduction and then redistributes the food to the local community through free meals projects, community pantries and a network of nearby charities.
On 22nd June those attending will see five two-minute rounds of boxing between fighters with various levels of experience and all hailing from the property sector.
The event is a popular gathering of leading figures within the industry including corporate and private landlords, agents, developers and suppliers, says Shamplina, and features a complimentary drinks bar.
'Every year we provide free structured training for the fighters at our training gym at JAB boxing in Bushey which will start later this month,'� he says.
'We hope to raise as much money as possible and add to the �115,000 we're already raised at the previous event; at last year's event alone we had over �3 billion of property represented in the room and it's a great event for network as well.'�
Shamplina is also planning a second event this December in Manchester and is seeking agents from the North West of England keen to get involved and box.
