Our Chair Allen was, unfortunately, unable to be at our meeting this month therefore Barbara our Treasurer opened the meeting.
Barbara started the meeting with her notices regarding upcoming events for which details will be emailed to all members in due course.
Brendon Smurthwaite, the new Supporter Liaison Officer at the football club came to our meeting to introduce himself to the Senior Tigers. He said if we had any issues, we were to contact him.
Our guest speaker this month was ‘Hull’s Golden Boy’, Luke Campbell. He was interviewed by our very own Richard Beachell. Luke started by talking about his new initiative Walk & Talk to help with mental wellbeing. You walk at your leisure and have the opportunity to talk to others whilst walking. Luke said how walking and talking helps lift your spirits and therefore helps your mental well-being.
Luke went on to talk about both his amateur and professional careers with a few funny stories along the way. Asked why he took up boxing, he said it sounded cool. Luke told us he only ever wanted to be an amateur boxer and an Olympic champion and we all know he certainly achieved that.
Following his retirement from boxing Luke told us about his appearance on Dancing on Ice which was a big departure from boxing.
Pat gave her usual vote of thanks to Luke on behalf of the Senior Tigers and said how extremely proud we were of him.
To finish the meeting off we held our usual raffle which raised £317.
