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.

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