Fighting for a Cause

Wrestling fans across Kirklees are in for a big treat this November as UK Wrestling hold a very special show in aid of Kirkwood Hospice. Being held in memory of Carrieanne Richardson, organisers promise a night of high flying, heavy impact wrestling.

On Saturday 17th November, event organiser, Dominic Richardson, is putting on a blockbuster night in memory of his beloved wife, Carrieanne Richardson.

The high powered event, Wrestling for Kirkwood Hospice, will take place at UK Wrestling Training Centre, Batley. Doors open at 5.30pm on the night with the first bell at 6pm.

Dominic, who is a keen wrestler himself, is raising money in aid of Kirkwood, which provided care for Carrieanne four years ago at the end of her life.

Dominic said: “I chose to raise money for Kirkwood Hospice because when Carrieanne was cared for there, they made her final days happy and comfortable.”

The evening will see wrestlers from UK Wrestling get into the ring for the fight of their lives. Dominic didn’t have to ask twice to fill the show, with a talented group of performers all keen to support the event in honour of Carrieanne.

The main event will see Wildcard Tommy Dillon facing off against his rival The Jester JayRow. The fight is being billed as the fight of their lives with both wrestlers laying it all on the line.

Another high profile match up dubbed Tag Team Turmoil, will see five teams fighting to prove their dominance, crowds are excited to see who will get the three count.

The event is also expected to feature The Man Mountain Andrew Jepson, The Scarmaker Kaine Taylor and Lance Revera.

Event organisers are hoping to boost funds on the night with a raffle and Michelle Richardson, Carrieanne’s mum, is going the extra mile by shaving her hair off in memory of her daughter.

Kirkwood Fundraiser, Lyndsey Wroe, said: “It’s set to be a great night for a great cause and is guaranteed to be full of action. Get down early to make sure you get the best seats in the house!”

Wrestling fans can get tickets on the door. Organisers are asking for a suggested donation of just £3, with all proceeds going to Kirkwood Hospice.
