50 Rounds & Out
Raising Money for the NHS
If you are friends with me on social media you will know that my older brother, Phillip Hastings has been in hospital since December after catching Covid-19. It affected him really badly with his breathing and lungs being really affected and then the doctors making the decision to put him in an induced coma. He was in this for nearly 3 weeks and during it he had to have a Tracheostomy to help with his breathing. He is now thankfully awake and out of intensive care but still has a long way to go to get back to anywhere near his old self.
After talking to his wife Sharon, and Phil himself and hearing how well the doctors and especially the nurses in Good Hope ICU looked after the big man, I have decided to try and raise some money for the NHS.
Two days before my 50th birthday I was meant to have my final fight (50 & Out) but due to Covid and the lockdowns it was never going to happen. I am not looking to fight again, but would like to raise some money for our NHS who are at breaking point dealing with this virus on top of their normal duties.
What I am looking to do is 50, two minute rounds of sparring with people, hopefully donating money or sponsoring me per round I do, with all money raised going to the NHS. Obviously at the moment it would be near impossible to do so, I will be looking to do this in April 2021 at the Birmingham Boxing Columns home and one of the best boxing gyms in Birmingham, Cogans Corner, if restrictions permit.
Please feel free to share this as I would like to raise as much money as I can for our National Treasure the NHS!!
