Thanks for taking the time to visit our fundraising page. In 2013 following a number of years playing competitive football, I was diagnosed with a minor jaw disorder called Temporomandibular joint dysfunction & referred to one of the top head & neck surgeons in the UK.

During the consultation he informed me that he was about to participate in his first White Collar Boxing event for charity. As a huge boxing fan we immediately connected & resulted in me going to watch him compete & win!2 years later & having stayed in contact during that period, he and a colleague of his asked if I'd be interested in being a trustee of a charity that he was extremely passionate about setting up, The Head & Neck Cancer Foundation (HNCF).

2 years ago I organised a charity boxing event with the original aim of raising £25k; with ticket sales, sponsorship, a live & silent auction we somehow managed to raise over £100k in a single evening, this was repeated at last year's event & we have now raised close to £300k.

On the evening of Wednesday 1st of November we will be aiming to do the same again with a new group of people participating from the media & advertising industry.
