Has The Champ met his match?

Amir Khan, two time former Light-Welterweight World Champion, visited the Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford to the delight of patients and staff.

 

The boxing champ took time out to meet patients, staff and volunteers at the hospice and help raise awareness of the care the hospice provides to people across Bradford and Airedale.

 

 The Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford provides expert care and the best possible quality of life for local people with terminal illnesses and vital support for their families, all completely free of charge.

 

 Amir met patients Jim Bannon, 64, David Owen, 66, and Jimmy Walsh, 86, as well as staff including Elaine Hill, the Hospice Manager and Dr Sarah Holmes the Medical Director at the hospice.

 

 Speaking about his visit Amir said: “It’s a brilliant place. I walked in and couldn’t believe how nice it was. If people are ill or they need help, they’ll come here and they’ll be looked after really well.

 

 “It’s nice to put a smile on patient’s faces too. They really appreciate this facility and it really helps having great staff looking after them.”

 Sharon Link, Fundraising Manager at the Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford said: “Having Amir visit the hospice was just fantastic, it really helps to give patients a boost. One patient, Jimmy, a former amateur boxer really enjoyed sharing boxing stories with Amir.”  

 

 This year it will cost over £3.5 million to run the Marie Curie Hospice, Bradford.
