As you may know, I’ve swapped the beers for boxing and I’m now halfway through 3 months of grueling training for a White Collar Boxing event, which will take place on Saturday 4 September at the Intercontinental Hotel.
My housemate, Antony Phillips, is also involved in this boxing event and we’re expecting about 600 people to attend. The event includes a four-course dinner and an open bar (yep that’s right booze hounds). There are 9 boxing matches – which last just six minutes each so I hope the training will be worth it...So, to help me stay out of trouble and get through the final 6 weeks of training, I want to invite you to come and watch (hopefully I can dodge the punches), but if you can’t make it on the night, it would be great if you could sponsor me instead.
I’m raising money for my own chosen charity – The Puffin Magic Foundation (PMF). This was set up for a friend from Australia, James Gribble, who on the 1st of November 2008 suffered a freak spinal injury while travelling in Africa and was left a quadriplegic. PMF was founded with the primary goal of supporting James through his rehabilitation. In time, the PMF will evolve to support others in similar circumstances or for spinal injury research.
To sponsor me, please click on 'DonateNow'. Any support you can offer would be very much appreciated by James, the PMF and Peter the Puffin – my personal trainer (see photo below). Peter the Puffin is the essence of fun, compassion and adventure to James and has been by his side since the accident.
Antony and I have currently reserved one Ringside and two Gold Tables of 10. To keep these tables we do need to receive the funds next week – (apologies for the short notice). Ticket prices range from HK$2,000 per person for Gold Tables to HK$2,400 per person for Ringside Tables. We have been told these tables are selling quickly so please let us know asap.
Should you wish to come, Antony and I will provide the following for the evening:
Ÿ Pre Event Champagne reception hosted by the lovely Kate and Ulrica at our place in the Valley
Ÿ Coach transfer on the Fun Bus from the Valley over to the Venue and return to Wyndham Street / Soho area
Finally, I do need to have a fitting boxing name so please do send me a few ideas. I have been called many names in my time, so please use your imagination.
Please forward to anyone you think may be interested to come or support the PMF.
I look forward to hearing from you.
