British boxing legend Frank Bruno is set to entertain at Wetherby Sports Association this summer.

The 1995 WBC heavyweight champion will tell of his stories from in and out of the ring at the event organised by Wetherby Athletic on June 20.

Athletic said this is one of a number of top-class fundraising features, starting with an evening with British football legend Gary McAllister on April 25 and a World Cup six-a-side tournament on June 21.

Spokesman Gus Taylor said: “This is the first time we have done something like this so we thought we would aim for the biggest and best.

“All money raised is for Wetherby Athletic to help support the future and keep the club alive for the long term as it has lost money for the last four years.

“We have a plan for the club and we need as much fundraising as possible to help achieve this.”

Tickets - £40 for Bruno and £20 for McAllister, are available from or phone 07767 765971.
