Recently I have been made aware of Dawson. He lives near Mansfield and is a couple of months away from being two. Dawson suffers from a form of cancer that affects 0.9 out of every one million people. It's called Hepatoblastoma. Sadly regular chemotherapy is not working... but there is hope.There is a pioneering treatment in the U.S.A that has the potential to save Dawson but it is very expensive. The cost comes it at around £600,000. In order to help with this very worthy cause, I have decided to set up a charity boxing night in Hull with all the profits from the night going to Dawson's family so he can get the treatment that he needs.
I am also trying to raise money to help another good cause... life for a kid. A charity that runs a sensory centre in Hull and provides day to day assistance to disabled children and kids who have autism.
To raise as much as I can I have tried to book a celebrity guest... the former heavyweight champion of the world Frank Bruno.
I have been told by his agent that he is available and wants to help, but his fee is £3650. Of course as a charity event we cant afford this... so here is the deal
Of course we will accept any donations people would like to give but just to let you know..
There is a table of 12 available at the event...and Big Frank is allocated one of those seats.
Anyone who pays £300 or more can have one of those seats and spend time with the man himself, as well as watch a night of great white collar boxing.
There is a short time in which to do this so please can you help

The first update is just for peoples information... Frank coming is on the understanding that the full fee is raised and paid. If we don't make it anyone who donates the £300 will still get a ticket to the night... but if Franks fee is not raise they will get thier name read out on the night when fighters come out. Any funds received will go to the charity...
