Photographer Tony to Get Boxing For Charity

By now you’re probably used to seeing hockey players drop the gloves and fight, all as part of the sport we love; but in three weeks’ time our Official Photographer will be putting them on, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Tony will be a familiar face to many supporters who come to see the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning on home match nights - behind the lens, capturing the action as well as post-game presentations. 

Last year he underwent a gruelling eight week training programme at Total Dojo in Bletchley to prepare him for an evening of Ultra White Collar Boxing (UWCB) last December, and raised £1,800 from sponsors to go to Cancer Research.

UWCB started in 2009 and since then has, to date, had over 139.000 fund raisers take part in white collar events all over the country, raising more than £14 million for this very deserving cause.  this makes UWCB the largest single contributor in the UK to Cancer Research.

This year on 8 December, Tony will put on the gloves once again for an evening’s competition at Stantonbury - with advance sponsorship for all participating boxers already topping a phenomenal £10,000 - and another three weeks still to go!

Also boxing at the UWCB event will be Scott Cawley, part of the team at Lightning sponsor AAMS Acute Ambulance & Medical Service.

Both Tony and Scott have set up JustGiving web pages for sponsorship donations to help spur them on:



VIP Tables for the event on 8 December have already sold out but Tony has a limited number of individual VIP tickets at £35 each - contact for more details.

The Lightning are away at Dundee on fight night so why not get along to the UWCB event at Stantonbury, cheer on Tony and Scott and help raise money for an extremely deserving charity; book your ticket via the following link:
