Former amateur boxer Kieran Bukowski has boosted the Islington BC coffers by more than £1,000 with a sponsored bicycle ride from London to Brighton.

The 52-year-old, who grew up in Archway, donned an entirely pink outfit – including an Islington BC T-shirt – for the 54-mile ride to raise funds for the club.

Islington BC events manager Mick Doherty said: “The club wish to thank Kieran and his many sponsors for their generosity. Kieran is a real character and it’s great to see him supporting the sport he still enjoys.”

The club will be holding their annual awards ceremony at the Hazellville Road gym on Sunday June 26, including drinks and a barbecue. All members are welcome, as are guests for a £5 fee.
