Haringey Box Cup 2018

The Haringey Box Cup, Europe’s biggest amateur boxing competition, took place last weekend at Alexandra Palace.

We have been the main official supporter of the Box Cup for the last 5 years as part of our Close to HOME community commitment, and as a result help provide an opportunity to young boxers from across the world to compete in the 3 day annual event at Alexandra Palace.

We ran an activity stand over the 3 days to engage with attendees of the competition, which included boxing and skipping competitions, and the return of our Close to HOME Map Competition. Visitors to the event and boxing clubs submitted their suggestions as to how we could support their club or local community, with the best entries receiving a Close to HOME project on behalf of William Hill.

In the lead up to the event, we also produced a short social media video with Dereck Chisora voicing his support for the competition.

Many thanks to all colleagues who helped run our activity stand and contributed to such an enjoyable tournament.
