A really big thank you to Chris, from Sky, for oiling the wheels that got Ringside involved in the boxing event.
I’ve known Chris for years, via Richmond Canoe Club, where he’s been a club stalwart for a long time.
In my past life, he ‘supported’ me in Devizes to Westminster Canoe Race’s, always being the sort of guy you could rely on to do something methodically and well.
I never for a moment thought that I’d have a boxing event staged in my honour… Well why would I..
But Chris’s involvement really upped the ante, and I suspect that his help in this event may just be the start.
He’s another example of someone stepping up to the mark and making a huge difference.
