President’s Sporting Club


Congratulations to our President, Frank Bruno, who ran in The Great North Run on Sunday to raise funds for The Presidents Sporting Club. Frank’s run was featured in The Daily Mirror:

Boxer Frank Bruno signed autographs and posed for selfies at the start with his fans. Raising money for the Presidents’ Sporting Club, and handicapped children, he said: “I have done half marathons all over the country, but I really enjoy this one. The money will help disabled kids around the UK, and across the world.
