A lot of you may already know Charlie, some may know of his current situation, but for those of you who don’t here is a little insight.

Charlie is a cheeky, loving, kind and considerate young man who is instantly loved by anyone who he comes into contact with. His fun loving personality is infectious. He has friends in abundance, a very close knit family and a beautiful wife of 2 years Alana.

At the age of 19 (he is now 29) he took himself off to a local gym because he fancied trying his hand in the world of amateurboxing. It turned out a very good decision as he went on to excel in the sport with a very good amateur record picking up many a good win and several titles along the way.

In 2016 he decided to take the plunge and turn professional. Although he picked up some decent sponsorship deals (the Millwall supporters club was by far the most prestigious to him as he is a lifelong Millwall supporter and season ticket holder). He still had to continue to work full time as an electrician to fulfil financial obligations. To date he has only had two pro fights mainly owing to bad luck with injures. Although comfortably won them both.

On March 16th 2018 whilst preparing for his third fight Charlie had a mishap when sparring. He became very weak towards the end of a six round sparring session and it was obvious that something was wrong…it was!

Charlie lost consciousness and was taken to Kings College Hospital where we were told he had suffered an acute subdural haematoma (a large brain bleed). Charlie had to have emergency lifesaving surgery where a proportion of his skull was removed to relieve dangerous pressure within his skull.

The operation was successful and the bleed was evacuated but Charlie’s brain had been significantly injured as a result of the bleed. Charlie remained in hospital for 10 weeks in a minimally conscious sate.

Then on 25th May 2018, he got the move that we were all praying for, he was moved to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability in Putney. Since this move his progress has been quite remarkable.

The greatest unknown now is the path ahead for Charlie; what will be his limitations and how long will the road to recovery take.

A lot of support was offered by many people after Charlie’s injury and his boxing family at the IBOX gym immediately rallied around ensuring financial support was given. Charlie is self-employed. But at that time fund raising seemed too much too soon.

Five months on from Charlie’s accident we are now coming to terms with the time scale of his rehabilitation and are more aware of his needs. Our rehabilitation centre is not NHS funded, extra physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy sessions all have to be privately funded, along with any adjustments that may be needed to his home.

Our ultimate goal is to get Charlie home. His words; “I want to get home and to be able to walk”. We will strive to ensure that he is able to accomplish these goals and greatly appreciate your help and support in his journey.

Charlie is a fighter, this is the biggest fight of his life but he will win it! #FEAR NO FOE!
