SPORTING memorabilia bid for by Chesterfield business manager of Gordon Lamb Land Rover Tom Iveson, has raised more than £1,500 for BEN.
Iveson, who participated in a charity boxing match last year and raised more than £580 for Cancer Research UK, had his heart set on getting one of the two signed gloves worn by the unified world heavyweight champion.
A number of signed Premier League football shirts were also gifted to the winners from clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Huddersfield Town.
Nigel King, Farnell Land Rover Jaguar fleet director for Vertu Motors, facilitated the charity auction in aid of Ben, a charity well-supported by the company.
Iveson said: “When I saw that some Anthony Joshua gloves were a part of this auction, I was over the moon. I kept an eye on the auction and made a last-minute spontaneous bid.”
