GREAT BRITAIN’S DOUBLE WORLD CHAMPION NATASHA JONAS TO SPEAK AT CHESHIRE SPORTSWOMAN’S LUNCH 2024

Liverpool’s renowned British boxer, Natasha Jonas, will be the guest speaker at the Cheshire Sportswoman’s Lunch 2024, which will take place at Chester Racecourse on Thursday 23rd May 2024.

The WBO and WBC Light-Middleweight Champion will attend the event and speak after the luncheon, which is being held in aid of the Inclusive Hub, a Liverpool-based boxing-based project supported by Natasha.

The Inclusive Hub makes exercise and education through boxing available to people of all ages and abilities.

Natasha has a wonderful story to tell. Throughout Liverpool’s history our city has claimed many ‘firsts’ in a wide range of fields and in May of 2012, Toxteth born Natasha claimed another ‘first’ for her home city when she entered the realms of British sporting history by becoming the first ever female boxer selected to represent Great Britain at an Olympic Games. Fighting in the Lightweight Category, Natasha further cemented her name in our country’s sporting history when, on Sunday afternoon 12th August 2012, she became the first British female boxer to enter the ring and take part in an Olympic Boxing Tournment.

Natasha produced a great perfomance to overcome her opponent. USA’s Quanitta Underwood by a convincing score of 21-13, so creating another GB record, by becoming the first ever British female boxer to win an Olympic boxing bout.

 Seventy-five per cent of funds raised at the event will be donated to Natasha’s cause, while the remaining 25 per cent will be divided between other local charities supported by the event’s sponsors.

The event is sponsored by Bathgate Business Finance, Bibby Financial Services, HM3 Legal, Mercer & Associates Wealth Management, Handlesbanken, Champion Accountants and Allianz.

Speaking of the Lunch, Bathgate Business Finance BDM, Chris McLoughlin, said: “We are thrilled to have the Liverpool legend that is Natasha Jonas join us for our second Cheshire Sportswoman’s Lunch. Last year the event raised an incredible £12k for its nominated charity, Melanoma UK. We are hoping to build on that success this year and in splitting the funds raised as we are we are hoping to provide help and support to more great causes to continue their great work.”

 

There are still some tickets remaining at £85 for a single ticket or

£800 for a table of ten.
