Who Cares Wins

As reported in last night’s Evening Telegraph, the West End Boys Amateur Boxing Club has gained the support of the armed forces charity “Who Cares Wins.”

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.
