The long-awaited Grafters Charity Boxing Event is coming to Pryzm, Nottingham on Sunday 20th March! Tickets for the first-ever event of kind are now available exclusively on Groubook.
Up to 30 driven and dedicated contestants from the hospitality industry are competing to raise money and awareness for mental health charities; Mind and Calm. The event aims to improve the lives of the people working tirelessly in the Hospitality industry and beyond, whilst simultaneously exposing the great work that these charities do.
As emphasised by Mind, for 1 in 4 of us, every day is a fight (and not in the boxing sense). We know that the hospitality industry is a challenging and intense industry to work in. Long shifts and unsociable hours are common, as well as exposure to drinking, drugs and aggression, which in turn takes a toll on the mental health of workers. The Royal Society for Public Health found 84% of hospitality workers suffer from work-related stress. And we want to do something about it.
After 8 weeks of training at Team Valentines Boxing Boot-camp, staff from the best bars and restaurants in Nottingham (Bierkeller, Mojo and Revolution to name a few!) will be venturing into the ring for a huge night of boxing action. Hosted by Pryzm, the night will consist of great entertainment, charity raffles, and some fantastic amateur boxing from our contestants!
