Nordoff Robbins teamed up with the London Ex Boxers Association to present the Boxing Icon award to legendary promoter Frank Warren at an evening of amateur boxing and fine dining. This exclusive event was held at the Marriott Hotel in London on Monday November 22nd. Gaudio were once again proud to design a bespoke award for the evening, following on from the previous partnership with Nordoff Robbins for the Silver Clef music awards.
The boxing dinner showcased Britain’s future talent and potential fighters for the 2012 Olympics. Attending the event were celebrities from the world of music and film who joined past and present boxing champions and British Olympic medal winner’s to raise money for Nordoff Robbins.
Frank Warren was inducted to the International Boxing Hall Of Fame in 2008 and has been Europe’s leading boxing promoter for the last 30 years. He has been responsible for launching and managing the careers of some of the UK’s finest boxers including Prince Naseem Hamed, Nigel Benn, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan and currently Olympic gold medallist James DeGale.
Play, dance or sing – everyone responds to music. It has a unique power and Nordoff Robbins harnesses this – with all its emotion, energy, resonance and rhythm – to reach children and adults whose lives are constrained by illness, disability, trauma or exclusion. Nordoff Robbins supporters are behind every life changing experience in music that we enable. We receive no statutory funding and are heavily reliant on voluntary donations to deliver 45,000 sessions every year – in schools, day centres, hospitals, and care homes across the UK, and in our Centre and Units. Every one of these sessions helps to transform someone’s life.
