Sheffield Boxing Centre has organised a sponsored walk around Hillsborough Arena in memory of Scott Westgarth, the Penistone boxer who collapsed and later died after a contest at Doncaster Dome, recently.

The plan is to raise money, which will be donated to Scott’s girlfriend Natalie.

Trainer Glyn Rhodes said: “We hope to have a bouncy castle and a few stalls,a raffle and auction. Some of our kids are doing a boxing exhibition so if anybody has any other ideas or suggestions please get in touch any help would be appreciated.”

The event is planned for May 27, 11.30am.

A full inquest date has yet to be set.

*Essex Ex-Boxers Association are also putting on a reunion on April 21 to raise funds for Scott and Herol ‘Bomber’ Graham, who is being treated at a mental health home in London.
