We are so proud to have seen one of our own, Nic Shaer, take part in this year's Rumble with the Agents, the biggest white collar boxing match within the property sector.
On Thursday 23rd May, The Holiday Inn in north London's Finchley Central, hosted the annual charity event which brought in a crowd of almost 300 property professionals and raised just shy of a staggering £18,500 for the children's charity Make-a-Wish.
Set up by Landlord Action's founder Paul Shamplina, a keen boxer himself, the event offers participants the opportunity to learn a new sport and get fit as well as bringing property professionals together, all in the name of raising awareness and funds for lesser known or smaller charities.
The evening saw 10 brave amateur boxers enter the ring and entertain the crowds with five total fights which consisted of a maximum of three rounds each. In addition, the guests enjoyed a three course meal and an exciting live auction which helped to raise additional funds for the charity.
Nic fought valiantly, cheered on by members of the Estate Office team, with the final scores reaching a draw. He said of the evening 'It was a great experience getting in the ring, I loved it... I may even sign up to it next year! The main thing is that it was for a great cause'.
Well done Nic!
