This is an open letter from Fred Sirieix from Galvins
Simon Vincent, Hilton Worldwide President for Europe and I will step in the ring on the 13th December and take on the former (undefeated) British and European welterweight boxing champion Clinton Mckenzie to fight for Galvin’s Chance, service and front of house.
We are both training hard in preparation for the big fight and are hugely grateful for your support. The fight will consist of ten rounds with the two of us alternating in and out of the ring in a tag team approach. The winner will be decided either by points scored or a knockout. We will need all of your good wishes as we will be going into battle with a fearsome foe at his own gym in south-east London (www.clintonmckenzie.com) - Clinton Mckenzie certainly knows his way around a ring as a former British and European welterweight champion and GB boxing Olympian!
We are putting our bodies on the line though in aid of a very good cause. Galvin's Chance is an into work apprenticeship scheme for disadvantaged young people which we have both supported since it started three years ago. Every penny raised from the event will be channelled by Hilton in the Community Foundation to Galvin's Chance to give these vulnerable young Londoners a second chance in life.

Clinton Mckenzie has been a key supporter of Galvin's Chance and together we hope to raise some much needed funds towards the 2012 initiative. On the 13th however there can only be one winner and it will be team Sugar Fred (the Stinger) and Simon the Marvellous!
Thank you so much for your generous support this Christmas. It is greatly appreciated and really will make a huge difference to these young people in need of our help. Please find the link http://www.justgiving.com/
Simon, Clinton and Fred
