Tom Le Sueur - White Collar Boxing

24952-tomsueur

Fort Regent's Events Officer, Tom Le Sueur took part in the Charity White Collar Boxing on Saturday 8th October! Not only that, Tom was selected to compete in Jersey's first ever White Collar Prize Fighter style contest! BoxinBusiness (a boxing club based at Fort Regent) helped Tom prepare for fight night, putting him through an incredible 10 weeks of grueling training, sparring and conditioning.

Tom was raising money for a charity very close to his heart, Clic Sargent, who help children with Cancer.  Tom's younger sister Georgia was diagnosed with Hodgekins Lymphoma in 2014 at the young age of 18 years old.  Clic Sargent were so helpful to Tom's sister and his family and she has now been given the all clear. Tom was proud that Georgia was able to attend the event and watch him fight in the ring to raise money for this very worthy cause.

Tom explained that the training and mental preparation was very hard at times, but was worthwhile as he raised a fantastic £1200 for charity.  Having witnessed first-hand the support Clic Sargent Jersey offered to his sister was all the motivation he needed to step into the ring.  

Tom thanks everyone who supported him on his journey and who made donations including the BoxinBusiness team who helped coach and guide him in the lead up to the event.  

Everyone in the Sport Division was behind Tom all the way and congratulate him for taking part.
