Tribute to Essex official Tina Davis
February 25, 2020 | by Matt Halfpenny
England Boxing has received the following tribute to Essex official Tina Davis, who passed away on 7th February, from Eastern Counties secretary and registrar, Edith Carter.
Tina began her time in boxing almost 40 years ago, helping out at the Chelmsford club which was then housed in an old shed-like building.
Seeing the poor state of the club premises, she began a campaign with her husband Peter, and the Essex Boys Clubs, to raise the funds needed to build a modern new gym and meeting facility.
This was eventually built in Rectory Lane, Chelmsford and is still used today for the benefit of the young people of the City.
She was the club secretary and club competition secretary for many years, helping to organise and match many successful charity shows in particular at the Heybridge Moat House Hotel in Ingatestone where the ham salads she provided for visiting clubs were well know in the area.
Tina also filled the role of Essex county secretary for a time, representing the county at Eastern Counties meetings and was an active boxing official in the Essex area.
Tina’s funeral will take place on Tuesday 3rd March at 2.30pm at Little Waltham Church, CM3 3IJ
All members of amateur boxing clubs are welcome to attend. Any floral tributes should be sent to: T. Pennack and Sons, 1-3 Maldon Road, Chelmsford, CM2 7DW.
