Wirral boxer hopes to inspire others
A WIRRAL boxer has set up a charity to help inspire people across the borough to take up the sport.
The Boxaid UK Foundation was founded by Wallasey-based Danny-Lewis Price.
The charity aims to inspire people of all ages and turn them to boxing or keep fit.
It aims to raise awareness and support a number of issues including bullying, physical and mental abuse, drug and alcohol issues and confidence.
Danny told the Globe: "I had a really tough upbringing and faced a lot of problems. Boxing has helped me so much. It has given me qualities in life that will make me a better person.
"Now I want to share my experiences and story to help others. I believe what I have gone through and where I have been, anything is possible and I won’t stop. I want to inspire people now and become a role model."
Boxing is one of the finest sports that give people respect, discipline, confidence and physical fitness.
The charity will hold and organise master classes, meet and greet dinner shows, sanctioned fight nights and charity events.
All money raised goes to all amateur boxing clubs registered with the foundation.
Danny's biggest goal is not only to have a successful boxing career but to make this charity a huge success and help thousands of people around the UK.
In a bid to drum up support for the charity, Danny has travelled the country with T-shirts that have been signed by a host of British legends including Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan, John H Stracey and Frank Bruno. Follow the charity on Facebook and Twitter @boxaiduk
