The Who Cares Wins charity’s founder Billy Fitzgerald set up the charity to find funding for a purpose built long stay mental health treatment unit for ex service personnel suffering with severe mental health problems.
Emilio Places-Rey of the West End Amateur Boxing Club told me, “If I told you that 15 months ago that I was opening a boxing club and to have Ken Buchanan as President and Billy Fitzgerald backing us, you would have thought I was crazy.
I am making my vision into reality and we have got a lot more to do. It is thanks to people like yourself and others coming together that is making it happen.”
I am pleased to support this hugely worthwhile project that is giving real opportunity to many young people in the local area.
