Story

Many fundraisers say they are prepared to risk life and limb for a good cause, but few actually agree to prove it!

Simon Vincent, Hilton Worldwide President, Europe and Fred Sirieix, General Manager at Galvin at Windows, will be doing just that on December 13th when they step into the ring to take on former British and European welterweight boxing champion Clinton Mckenzie...

 

Thank you very much for visiting the page of Sugar Fred the Stinger and Simon the Marvellous! We are both training hard in preparation for the big fight and are hugely grateful for your support. The fight will consist of ten rounds with the two of us alternating in and out of the ring in a tag team approach. The winner will be decided either by points scored or a knockout. We will need all of your good wishes as we will be going into battle with a fearsome foe at his own gym in south-east London - Clinton Mckenzie certainly knows his way around a ring as a former British and European welterweight champion and GB boxing Olympian!

 

We are putting our bodies on the line though in aid of a very good cause. Galvin's Chance is an into work apprenticeship scheme for disadvantaged young people which we have both supported since it started three years ago. Every penny raised from the event will be channelled by Hilton in the Community Foundation to Galvin's Chance to give these vulnerable young Londoners a second chance in life.

Clinton Mckenzie has been a key supporter of Galvin's Chance and toegether we hope to raise some much needed funds towards the 2012 initiative. On the 13th however there can only be one winner!

Thank you so much for your generous support this Christmas. It is greatly appreciated and really will make a huge difference to these young people in need of our help.

 

Let's Rumble!

 

Simon, Clinton and Fred
