Undefeated champions Comms-care raise thousands for Help for Heroes
Comms-care, the Cheshire based IT Support company, has claimed its 5th victory in the CRN charity Fight Night raising thousands of pounds for Help for Heroes.
Seb “The Hurt locker” Hemmings entered the ring on behalf of Comms-care and his chosen charity, Help for Heroes. Seb also had the added pressure of defending Comms-care’s unbeaten title at the charity white collar boxing event, organised by the channel publication CRN and held at The Brewery in London.
With donations prior to the Fight Night from colleagues and friends, and money raised on the Fight Night, a total of £2000.00 has been raised for the charity close to Seb’s heart, Help for Heroes.
The dedication to training that Seb showed leading up to the event enabled him to be focused and nimble facing his opponent in the ring on the night. Fighting against Tunji Oyedele from Orange IS, Seb held his own and was announced the winner by audience votes after 3 rounds of entertaining and physical boxing.
Seb commented on his victory “There was pressure on me on the night to defend Comms-care’s undefeated title but with all of the training and preparations I did and donations I’ve received to motivate me, I knew I could win the fight. To be able to take part in such an event and to raise money for a charity that is so close to my heart has been an amazing experience, so thank you to everyone who has supported me and donated money to Help for Heroes.”
June Ross, county Co-ordinator for Cheshire and Wirral Help for Heroes said on the donation, “The money that Seb has raised is fantastic, substantial amount that will do wonders towards helping the men which Help for Heroes support. The fact that Seb also won his fight at the Fight Night is great!”
Help for Heroes is a charity that raises money to support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.
