Inverurie Round Table hosted the Inverurie and District annual charity boxing dinner in association with the Garioch Sports Trust.

It was once again a successful event held at the Garioch Sports Centre with all money raised going to the local community.

Round Table president Andy Clegg said: “We had boxers from as far away as Glasgow competing over eight bouts of outstanding amateur boxing.

“North East Sports and All Memorobilia were the main sponsors for the fourth year running and Tony Stott delivered some great sporting memrobilia which all sold long with some great auction prizes, so we are sure to have raised a healthy total from the event.”

The event attracted boxers from Glasgow, Fort William, Elgin and Aberdeen to pit their skills against each other.

The next Insch ABC show will be on February 27 at the Bennachie Centre in Insch.
