Sapper Vs Gunners Charity Event raises £50,000 for Autism Research Trust and the Felix fund.

On the 6th July 2016 MMS were delighted to be invited to attend the ‘Sappers V Gunners’ Army charity boxing event organised by the 101 (City of London) Engineer Regiment (Explosive Ordnance Disposal).

The event, that took place at Stamford Bridge, saw 400 guests entertained with 9 bouts of boxing alongside a 4 course meal and auction. The event was a huge success and raised a staggering £50,000 which beat their 2015 total of just over £41,000.

A special event organised to present the charities with the monies at Carver Barracks took place in February 2017 where Lieutenant Colonel Hawkins and Honorary Colonal Jools Holland, who is also a patron of the Autism Research Trust, were able to present each Charity with a staggering £25,000.
