TENBURY was showcased to nearly 700 people at a major Birmingham Sports Stadium.

Boxers from the town were amongst a team representing England in an international against Ireland staged at Villa Park.

A donation from the event was made to Megan Baker House in Leominster.

There were 670 who sat down to a three-course meal followed by 15 amateur bouts at the Holte Suite under the main stand at the home of Aston Villa.

One of the promoters of the evening was Paddy Brennan from the Bluestone Centre at Bleathwood.

Spectators from all over England and throughout Ireland heard about Tenbury when they visited the show that included Liz Williams from the town, who represented the England team and will box in the United States later this year.
