Boxers will take to the ring at a glamorous ball at the Grosvenor this autumn.


The white collar boxing match will be the highlight of an evening designed to raise money for disabled youngsters’ charity Caudwell Children.

Guests will sit at ringside tables in an evening promising “adrenaline fuelled action”, along with ball gowns, red carpets, flash bulbs, champagne and dancing.

Around 750 people from across the world will attend the Float Like a Butterfly Ball at Mayfair’s Grosvenor House Hotel in November, and tickets are still available.

Last year the ball attracted stars such as TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, Lady Wilnelia Forsyth, the widow of Sir Bruce Forsyth and a former Miss World, and glamour model Nell McAndrew (all pictured).

At the heart of the evening is the white collar boxing event.

Eight volunteers from all industries, who are completely new to boxing and have undergone three months of intensive training, step in to the ring for the first time.

Their aim is to fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Caudwell Children has supported more than 40,000 children with 650 medical conditions. It steps in where parents are unable to access the support they need.

The charity was founded by John Caudwell, the billionaire British businessman who co-founded Phones 4u.

He pays the charity’s annual administration and management overheads so that 100% of other donations go to the children and families who need it.


Tickets are still available to book here.
