South London Boxer Charlie Wynn Had Lifesaving Brain Surgery in March

During a sparring session in March, Charlie Wynn suffered a bleed on the brain. He underwent emergency surgery in Kings College Hospital, and in May transferred to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability in Putney.

His family have set up a go fund me page, to raise funds to support Charlie’s rehabilitation from his lifesaving surgery. Charlie is a Southpaw Jab regular, having appeared on our podcast and YouTube channel, we are devastated at the news, but very happy he’s making progress.

A statement by his family on the Go Fund Me page reads “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!”

The Go Fund Me page has raised over £10,000 in 5 days. You can donate by clicking here https://www.gofundme.com/charlie-wynn
