DEBRA Fight Night 2021 raises £80,000

We're delighted to announce that our annual Fight Night event has raised £80,000 to help #FightEB!

The evening was hosted on Friday 19th November by legendary boxing manager and promoter, Frank Warren, who is in his 16th year of hosting the event for DEBRA. 

Frank Warren said:

I am delighted to be hosting this incredible evening of boxing supporting DEBRA’s Fight Night. As Vice President of the charity, I have been supporting this event for more than 15 years and it is a fantastic evening.

The money raised at Fight Night will help us to fund vital healthcare such as specialist EB nurses as well as research, care and life-changing support for the EB community. 

The evening started with a champagne reception on arrival at the stunning The Brewery London venue, followed by a black-tie dinner and top-class live boxing, including boxers from The Army, The Royal Navy and The Royal Air Force.

Lucy Beall Lott, a DEBRA ambassador, gave a powerful speech to guests about her life with Recessive Dystrophic EB and her hopes for a future without EB.

"A future for people with EB is possible, we can see it, it's almost here. It will soon be possible for me to say, due to the work we are doing here tonight, that I am Lucy Beall Lott and I HAD EB."
