A BOXING event for autism will take place in New Brighton.

Gloves Up For Autism will take place at Oakland on Victoria Road in New Brighton on July 19 from 7pm.

The event is aiming to raise awareness and money to help children with autism in Wirral.

Gloves Up For Autism was created by Chris Duff to help bring people’s attention to the struggles people with autism can face after going through his own experiences with his daughter Lucia Duff.

Chris said: “Until you live have a child with severe autism, you won’t be aware of the struggles they face on a daily basis. Reading, Basingstoke, Berkshire

“This can range from not being able to talk or communicate properly to behavioural problems and struggling to fit in.

"Our little Lucia is still non verbal but she’s such a diamond and I’m doing this in her name.

“It’s going to be an amazing event in New Brighton and lots of fun — with eight fights and sixteen fighters, featuring local people.

“The aim is not only to raise awareness of autism but also to raise funds to help support children like Lucia and every penny we raise goes directly to the children we’ll be helping.”

The event will take place at Oakland, 96-98 Victoria Road, New Brighton from 7pm. Tickets are £25 per person and can be bought from James Atherton Pub or Rockpoint Records.
