|I have been involved in a number of projects locally and nationally to promote worthy causes and share my own life
experiences. Help is offered by giving a clear direction to people’s lives and offering encouragement. Helping people
from all walks of life and covering all age groups.
I have been involved with various charities over the last couple of years and I'm always looking at ways to help in
whatever way possible in my local community and surrounding areas .
One of my main charities in recent years has been Promise Dreams who
give seriously or terminally ill children help with treatment and offer ongoing support and help for the families. The
charity aims to fulfil the wish of the child by delivering their dream, whether that may be a holiday, a toy or even to meet
there favourite celebrity.I have really enjoyed helping promote the events of Promise Dreams and having a young
daughter and son myself makes it something that is close to my heart. Helping put a smile on the face of a young girl
or boy, who has had to endure so much because of their illness, is very rewarding.
I have also started to work closely with another charity thats close to my heart in Macmillan Cancer Support who
improve the lives of people affected by cancer. They provide practical, medical and financial support and push for
better cancer care.
|The story above is all about helping Samuel to get a new Electric chair. Samuel is one of the many that
I have been lucky enough to help and be involved in with the events that have taken place at the Shard
End Brookmeadow Public House.
I was happy to donate some of my personal items and some other items into the auction from the world
of football and boxing in order to help raise enough money to achieve our goal. The only favour I asked
of Samuel, a local lad, was that he got his new chair in the colour Blue for my team Birmingham City (I
was only joking)which he said he would.
True to his word the next time I met with Samuel was to present him with a new blue electric chair.
|Addicted to sport programme run by West Midlands Police
I have thoroughly enjoyed been involved in this programme and it has given me the
opportunity to give something back to boxing sport at grass roots level.
Working alongside Les Potts on behalf of West Midlands police force The programme helps young
offenders turn there attention to something more a lot more productive.
Les Potts has done a fantastic job and hopefully he will continue to get more funding for a new
programme that might discover the next champion to come out of the Midland Counties.
|Pertemps – Birmingham
I have recently become involved with various projects that recruitment company Pertemps have run.
Helping the local community get back into work and helping to provide youngsters with the motivation
to succeed in whatever they put there minds to and ultimately finding a job this mainly involves the 18-
24 group from in around the Birmingham area .
