MONTROSE Cricket and Rugby Club is holding a raffle and auction at their dinner and ceilidh later this month (March 26).

They have received a very generous donation of a framed boxing glove signed by Britain’s only undefeated boxing world champion, Joe Calzaghe.

During his career, Calzaghe won all of his 46 fights, 32 of which were knock-outs and in 2009 he also took part in BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The signed boxing glove will be auctioned off along with a number of other sporting lots.

Vicki Smart, Micros coach at Montrose, said: “We have been delighted with the support we have had for our auction and raffle.

“As well as the signed boxing glove, we have a rugby top signed by the Scotland team that beat South Africa this autumn, a tour of Celtic’s stadium at Parkhead and a set of golf clubs.

“The funds raised will go towards supporting our ongoing efforts to introduce rugby to children in Montrose and the surrounding area.”

If anyone is interested in bidding for any of the lots, opening and maximum bids should be e-mailed to
