Barry McGuigan Rallies The Troops For August 12th Boxers Football Tournament

There are few men in the sport of boxing more respected than Barry McGuigan – Rightly so as the former British, European and WBA Featherweight World Champion is a true legend in his own life time.

During his relatively short eight year pro career Barry fought some thirty eight times, nine of which were title fights. Now a successful manager, promoter, boxing writer and pundit Barry’s life seems just a busy as it was back in the 1980’s, yet the man known in his fighting days as ‘The Clones Cyclone’ still found the time to talk about the upcoming 3rd Annual TRAD TKO Boxers and Celebrities Charity Football Tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust, that takes place on Sunday the 12th August.

“First of all I think it’s a magnanimous and generous of Johnny (TRAD TKO Supremo Johnny Eames) to organise this event every year, especially in the light of he has been suffering from cancer himself for the past year or so, just goes to show his personal determination and generosity.

The Indee Rose tournament, as an event, is simply the biggest coming together of boxers that I know of, it’s a brilliant idea. It’s a great event, it’s very competitive yet it’s a great day out for everyone.

The great thing about boxing is you can come up to the guys, they’re very humble and always happy to give their time as well, they’re very special people.

Even those that have big fights coming up, they may not play but they still turn up to show their support and meet the fans, it’s lovely you know.

The generosity and humility in boxing always sets it apart from other sports, it’s a dangerous sport, a great sport and paradoxically Boxers are probably the most generous people in sport.

Last year the event raised over £20,000 for the Indee Rose Trust, which went to help bring some joy to the kids, who are suffering from brain and spinal tumours, with their wonderful care packages.

I know Johnny and all the boxers that take part will want to do even better this year.”

This year’s TRAD TKO Boxing Gym organised Boxers and Celebrities Football Tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust, kicks off at 12:00pm at the Concord Rangers FC, Thames Road, Canvey Island, Essex on Sunday 12th August 2012.

Tickets for this very special event, priced: Standard: £10.00 and V.I.P. £20.00, are available on-line from www.tkoboxoffice.com or in person from the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym, Gillian House, Stephenson Street, Canning Town, London E16 4SA

Children’s tickets, priced £5.00, will be available on the day.

Boxing Stars lace up Boots for the third annual Indee Rose Trad TKO Charity Tournament on August 12th

 

Boxing Stars Lace Up Boots For 3rd Annual TRAD TKO Charity Football Tournament On August 12th

For the past couple of years around this time TRAD TKO Boxing Gym supremo Johnny Eames has taken a break, from the business of Boxing, to head up the team that organises the annual Boxers and Celebrities Charity Football Tournament, to raise much needed funding for the Indee Rose Trust, which provides support and care packages for youngsters suffering from brain and spinal tumours.

This year is no different, as earlier today Johnny announced the date and location for this year’s extravaganza – Sunday, 12th August at the Concord Rangers Football Club on Canvey Island, Essex.

For those of you that have yet to attend one of these excellent tournaments, boy have you missed out on a great day out, as well as the chance to watch some of the sport’s biggest stars in action.

The list of those that have taken part in previous events, many of whom will again be at Canvey Island on the 12th August, is a veritable who’s who of British Boxing, Music and Television.

Boxing luminaries, such as David Haye, Ricky Hatton, Nathan Cleverly Matthew Macklin, Kevin Mitchell, Ricky Burns, Barry McGuigan, Paul and Stephen Smith, Billy Joe Saunders, Willie Limond, Rendall Munroe, Anthony Crolla, Graham Earl, Tony Oakey, Wayne Elcock, Ross Minter, Martin Power etc. have previously taken part, of which many will again be in action on the 12th August and joined by celebrities such as Alex Reid, Johnny Borrell (Razorlight), Iron Maiden, Mark Wingett (Jim Carver – The Bill), Stephen Bell (Coronation Street), various of the Eastenders and Shameless cast etc.

These special events have proved a huge hit with the fans, with both the previous events raising in excess of £20,000 for this exceptionally worthwhile cause. A figure that Johnny, as well as the Boxers and Celebrities already signed up for this year’s event, will be determined to better.

On making the announcement Johnny, who last year himself underwent treatment for Cancer, said, “Yeah, this year sees the third annual TRAD TKO Charity football tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust. Which, for those that don’t know, has boxers and celebrities taking part and raising money for children with brain and spinal tumors.

It’s a great cause, we’ve had a great response from the boxing community, as well as from celebrities from music and TV, for the first two years and this years been no different.

In fact this year’s been crazy, even though we haven’t press released it yet because we’ve been busy with other things, yet the phone hasn’t stopped, everyone, celebrities and boxers, want to take part.

The past couple of years we’ve had a proper who’s who of boxing turn out, the likes of David Haye, Ricky Hatton, Nathan Cleverly, Ricky Burns, Rendall Munroe, Kevin Mitchell, Billy Joe Saunders, Paul Smith, just to name a few, but the list is endless and if I’ve not mentioned you, I don’t mean nothing by it, there are so many of you that come and turn out for it and we really appreciate that you do.

Last year’s was fantastic, we raised over twenty grand again, which far exceeded anything we expected as we put it together over a three week period due to my treatment. But that’s made me more determined to raise even more this year really.

This year we’ve got Joe Gallagher bring his team down again, which I’m sure will have more players than it did last year. Billy Nelson’s bringing a Scottish team down, Nathan Cleverly’s bringing his own team down from Wales, full of Welsh fighters and celebrities. It’s a real four nations as we’ve also got Alio bringing the Irish boys over again.

Paul Smith and the scousers, who won the first year, will be back. Paul who like me is a patron of the Indee Rose Trust and does great work up in Liverpool for the kids – he likes to keep it low profile but we’re watching and know what great work you’re doing, it’s fantastic what you do kid.

It’s just a great cause and if you haven’t been before, you really should get yourself along there on the 12th August, it’ll be at Concord Rangers Football Club on Canvey Island.

Keep a check on the TKO website, my facebook page and for press releases to learn more about who’ll be there as well as tickets and stuff.

Look forward to seeing you all there.”

Como Group supports The Indee Rose Trust by raising £25,000

The Como team working on the refurbishment project  at 199 Bishopsgate for British Land has raised £25,000 for the Indee Rose Trust, by hosting a fundraising dinner on site. Over 130 people attended the event which took place in the almost unrecognisable site canteen which had been transformed into a Jubilee themed street party.

The event was organised by Como commercial manager, Zoe Smith with Gary Scammell, Nick Vukmirovic, Sunil Sharma, Richard Wash, Kieron McAndrew and Steve Gibson of the Como project team kindly volunteering to serve the delicious three course meal prepared by Canteen Projects.

After the dinner, it was time for auctioneer for the day, Como M&E manager, Ian Willett to get the auction started.  Furious bidding ensued with a tremendous amount of support from the supply chain.  Auction items included lots such as dinner at the Chef’s table at Claridges, Palmers race day and an annual Merlin family pass.

A sponsored hair shaving was also on the agenda. Tony Worboys from MJ Lonsdale was sporting a new bald look by the end of the day, raising almost £2,000.

Indee’s parents Jane and Russ and grandparents were in attendance and were very pleased with the result as it’s the biggest single fundraiser we have had to date!

Zoe Smith of Como said, ‘‘the event was a tremendous success! We are so pleased to be able to support such a worthwhile cause.  A very big thank you must go to our project team and our supply chain who contributed so generously.”

Russell Dopson, of The Indee Rose Trust said, "We were so pleased when we were told Como were holding a fundraising day, we are over the moon with the amount raised, as this is the biggest fundraising event we have had to date! Thank you so much to Zoe, Gary, Nick, Sunil, Richard, Kieron, Steve and everyone who donated on the day we are really touched, this is a fantastic amount to contribute for Indee's treasure box fund."

 

BBC Documentary 'Great Ormond Street' gives real insight into our brave 'Treasure Box Children'

The second series, BBC documentary 'Great Ormond Street' which is filmed over the course of a year,  features unprecedented access to doctors from the children's hospital Great Ormond Street as they make some of the hardest choices in medicine. When medical technology seems to offer so much, every parent with a sick child will hope that something can be done, but doctors must decide when enough is enough. For the first time on television, cameras follow Great Ormond Street Hospital's doctors into the meetings where they come face to face with the most difficult ethical dilemmas on a daily basis.

The first episode of the second series on Tuesday 8th May on BBC2 at 9.00pm featured two of our wonderful and brave treasure box children.  It was especially tough for Indee's parents and family to watch as it brought back so many memories, we hope the series brings much needed awareness to this ilness which is the number one childhood cancer and the least funded by the government, we send all our love to all the familes who are took part in the series.  Follow the six part series next week BBC2, Tuesday at 9.00pm.

To watch the series and read more information go to the BBC website here.

Local boys run for our charity!

In March 2012, a group of local Canvey schoolboys took part in a sponsored run to raise money for our charity.

Byron Brackett, 12, Martyn Lacey, 12 and Harry Harrison 12, who attend the Castle View School, organised and completed the run to raise money for the Indee Rose Trust.

The three youngsters go to school with Indee’s brother Finley, and were so moved by the charity’s good work they felt compelled to do all they could to further their cause.

Byron’s mother Sally Brackett, 38, of Gainsborough Avenue, Canvey, said: “I am so extremely proud of them for coming up with the idea themselves and putting in all this hard work for such a worthy foundation.”

Eleven pupils took part in event, running from Canvey Rugby Club, in Dovervelt Road, to the Labworth Cafe, in Western Esplanade, Canvey and managed to raise £85.

Following their success, Byron, Martyn, and Harry are looking into organising another sponsored event to raise even more money our charity.

Indee Rose Trust Celebrity Football Event - line up announced....

Our annual celebrity football event takes place Sunday 14th August 2011 at Concord Footbal Club on Canvey Island. The event starts at 12.00pm, but gates open from 11.00am.

Last July Johnny Eames our patron and the crew at the TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town organised a celebrity football tournament, on Canvey Island, Essex, to raise funds for the Indee Rose Trust. The event was a massive success that not only attracted stars from the world of boxing, television and music but also raised in excess of £20,000 for this worthy cause.

On August 14th Johnny, and boxing stars Matthew Macklin, Kevin Mitchell, Ricky Burns, Barry McGuigan, Paul and Stephen Smith, Willie Limond, Tony Oakey, Wayne Elcock, Ross Minter, Martin Power, Steve Collins, Kell Brook; and will be joined by celebrities such as Alex Reid, Johnny Borrell (Razorlight), Mark Wingett (Jim Carver – The Bill), Stephen Bell (Coronation Street), various members of the Eastenders and Shameless cast and many more to be announced at the Concord Rangers FC ground on Canvey Island for the second annual Celebrity Football Tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust,

Johnny, who earlier this year was himself diagnosed with cancer, is clearly determined that this years event will be even more successful than the last, as he made clear when he said earlier, “Last year’s was fantastic, we raised over twenty grand, which far exceeded anything we were looking at doing. But that’s made me greedier to raise even more this year really.

We’ve been a little bit slow getting it off the ground this year, for certain reasons , certain things have been going on in my life which didn’t allow me to get involved quite as early as I planned to, but hopefully those problems are dealt with now and we want to move on to help out a worthy charity, which I am proud to be patron of.

I’m privileged to know the parents of young Indee, Russell and Jane, and privileged to be able to raise money to help children suffering with the same disease. This year’s event is hopefully going to be a lot bigger than last years, we’re sitting down at the moment and planning out how it’s going to go, what players we have coming this year.

Because of the lateness on starting things this year we’ve missed a few of the players, but it’s still basically the same sort of response as last year.

Paul Smith’s Pick Pockets celebrate after winning last year’s tournament - Photo Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro

Paul Smith’s pickpockets, who won it last year, are coming. Graham Earl’s got a team, which he seems to want to have a bet he’ll win it outright this year.

Us runners up – TKO Boxers – I’m pretty confident as I’ve got a few ringers up my sleeve.

Indee Rose are going to field a team this year, and they seem confident that they’re gonna win it, they’ve been training for it for three months already, and that’s just to get their beer bellies off.

Boxing News are gonna put a team in them self, they won the wooden spoon last year, but I’m sure that Tris (Dixon) from Boxing News has got a few tricks up his sleeve as he doesn’t want to get disgraced like last year. All in the fun of it.

Ringtone Gym are putting together a music and boxing team headed up by Ben (Day) himself and his mate Johnny Borrell, from Razorlight, they enjoyed last year so much they decided to put their own team together this year.

We’ve got a team of Paddy’s coming over and Ricky Burns is bringing a team of Jocks down from bonny Scotland.

Sam Webb clears his lines as Pat McAleese blocks - with his hand! - Photo Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro

Our sponsors have come forward a lot this year, we only need one more team to do, which I’m pretty certain will be covered by end of play. We are still looking for certain sponsors, one to pay the hotel bill for all the traveling teams. The other sponsor we are looking for is on the catering side, we’ve got an after tournament party for the players and their families and are looking for someone that does catering.

The event this year is going to be covered by Sky Sports, Ed Robinson himself came down to the gym last week and did an interview to promote the event and he’s assured ne that he is going to give the event some coverage this year on Ringside, which’ll be great for potential sponsors, if they sponsor the right team you’re going to get some good coverage, although every sponsor is going to have his name on the front of the shirts, so there’s going to be plenty of advertisement for the team sponsors. It’s worth getting involved if only to help these youngsters that are suffering with this terrible disease.

Ben Day, Johnny Borrell and Ricky Hatton at last years event - Photo Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro

I’m pretty certain that we can top the twenty thousand that we raised last year and hopefully double it. Get your fingers on the phone and ring me up and get your pledges going.”

Indee Rose’s father Russell Dopson then added “Last year was amazing, I couldn’t believe how many stars we had turn up.

We had over three thousand people turn up on the day and we managed to raise twenty thousand pounds, which was well above our expectations.

Everyone is buzzing about this year, I can’t wait to get it all going and am really looking forward to it.”

This year’s TRAD TKO Boxing Gym promoted Boxers and Celebrity Football Tournament, in aid of the Indee Rose Trust, kicks off at 12:00pm at the Concord Rangers FC, Thames Road, Canvey Island, Essex on Sunday 14th August 2011.

Tickets for this special event, priced: Standard: £10.00 and V.I.P. £20.00, are available on-line from www.tkoboxoffice.com or in person from the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym, Gillian House, Stephenson Street, Canning Town, London E16 4SA

For the last year and a half life has been tough as we lost our beautiful daughter Indee to an inoperable brain tumour in 2009. Indee is our inspiration for our charity The Indee Rose Trust, a charity that supports children with brain and spinal tumours, and winning this title has helped me realise that us mums especially with children who may have a serious illness are truly amazing. I have had the privilege of meeting so many of these wonderful mums and everyday their lives is one big battle fighting against their child’s tumour. Also I would like to thank everyone who voted for me as you have made my son smile as it has been a very tough year for him also. He's so excited about going to Alton Towers!”
