Army set to kick in with help for annual charity tournament


An annual event that has raised over £16,000 for local charities is set to kick off again at Kinloss Barracks this month.

The Army have continued where the previous occupants of the Moray base left off in supporting the annual charity kick-boxing tournament at the military facility.

Around 200 kick-boxers from throughout Scotland are expected to arrive in Moray on Sunday, September 28 for the event, which this year will provide vital support for the Maggie’s Cancer charity, Friends of the Oaks in Elgin and the Ladybird Development Group in Lossiemouth.

The annual tournament is once again being organised by Tony Carroll, who works as a civil servant at RAF Lossiemouth.

Tony said: “It is great to have the support of 39 Engineers once again for the charity competition – it was great when the officer commanding gave his full backing to run the event again.”

It will be the fourth year that the event has been held with volunteers being assisted by support from the World Karate and Kickboxing Association. The event will include competitive categories for male and female teams of all age groups.

Anyone seeking further information about taking part in the competition or who may be able to assist in any way is being asked to contact Tony Carroll on 07786 160280.
