Boxing project for refugee children

£1,330 of £500 goal

Raised by 61 people in 27 months
As you all know, I am currently injured and therefore my hopes of representing England at the European Championships in November have been crushed. I'm deeply gutted about this, especially since it is due to a mistake (chemical burn) caused in surgery. However, I can't change that, I can only decide how to respond, and I have decided to try and turn it into a positive, by helping others, and those 'others' are children and youths in the jungle refugee camp in Calais. I will be going there along with Mark during my October school holiday to help set up a boxing gym, run boxing sessions, sports sessions, teach English, and help out in any way we can.  We know what a difference sport can make in people's lives, no matter what situation they may be in, it can offer hope, escapism, confidence, and the opportunity to feel part of something, feel valued, and to just be a kid for that part of the day. Regardless of the politics involved, children are never at fault, yet suffer greatly during times of conflict. I really believe that by showing we care, it can make a difference, and I know sport can have a lasting impact on people, just as it always has on me.
I have already booked our transport, but it would really help if I could raise some money towards petrol, van hire, and accomodation etc. It will cost around £1000 for the trip and if I can raise £500 towards it that would really help with the expenses. Please donate if you can, and if you have boxing or sports supplies such as equipment/sports clothing or anything like that please let me know!! We'll be packing as much stuff as possible into the van so any donations will be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you have boxing/sports equipment you can donate! 
Thank you for reading,
Stace xx
