AN AMATEUR boxing club hosted a very special visitor.
Deputy Lieutenant of Hampshire Brigadier David Harrison went to Titchfield Amateur Boxing Club and was greeted by coaches, boxers and club members.
He visited as the club was assessed for its eligibility to compete for the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service 2014.
Ken Charman, from the club, said: ‘We now wait until the New Year when a nomination from Hampshire for the Queen’s volunteers award will be decided to find out if we go forward for the national finals.’
Since 2003, 25 voluntary groups in Hampshire have received The Queen’s Award.
This year, nine Hampshire groups have been nominated, the results of which will be announced on June 2. Further details are available from direct.gov.uk/qavs
