Box4Good - a UK based fundraising organisation supporting disadvantaged children in Grenada - has been set up by Alan Shew as a project under the Humanitas Charity (registered charity no. 1114639), and working with the Grenada Sports and Wellbeing Foundation.
Tudor Lodge is supporting Box4Good to help raise funds for future events.
A boxing tournament is planned at the Grenada Trade Centre, St George's, Grenada in 2021.
Twelve young English amateur boxers will be invited to attend to box against twelve young boxers from Grenada and Carriacou from local boxing clubs. The aim is to provide a life changing event for the young boxers from Grenada and Carriacou with an experience that will allow them to set goals in their lives for future success. The local boxers will not necessarily be champions in the making, but local boys who have the most to gain from taking part in an event that they would not normally have the opportunity to attend.
The cost of taking the English team to Grenada, including trainers, coaches, chaperones, accommodation, flights, etc., is in the region of £35.000.00, which it is hoped will be raised from charitable donations through a series of events and support in the UK.
The Grenada Trade Centre holds approximately 1,100 seated spectators. The Prime Minister of Grenada, Mr Keith Mitchell, has agreed to present the prizes on the evening. He will be accompanied by other Ministers responsible for Sports and Tourism. The event will also be covered by local radio and television networks.
The event is also supported by Trevor McIntosh, Founder Member of the Grenada Sports and Wellbeing Foundation, Grenadian Boxing Coach Sebastian Steil, and Former Grenadian Boxer Prince Rodney (pictured above with a group of local young boxers).
