White collar warriors aiming to go a couple of rounds with opposite numbers from the Plymouth business community could end up toe to toe with Bruton Knowles’ Glenn Kelly.
Glenn – an associate at Bruton Knowles’ Lockyer Street office will be up against two dozen other white collar workers, at Plymouth Pavilions on Saturday April 25, from a number of Plymouth businesses including Mark Holt, Sound Financial, Nexolutions, The Treasury, Independent Utilities, Full Circle Property Management, KitWorld, Base Concepts and MoneySaveSolutions.
Although Glenn has never boxed before he is a regular at his local gym and turns out for the Plymouth Parnell’s gaellic football team.
My wife thinks I am having a mid-life crisis but this is all for a great cause. I have just turned forty and felt I wanted to give something back to the community we work in. Jeremiah’s Journey do so much good work for kids and it’s going to be a great night for them!
Glenn has been taking a few extra tips from colleague Kirk Davidson – latest recruit to Bruton Knowles’ Plymouth team and a graduate of the Royal Navy school of hard knocks.
The charity fighters have been drilled by experts from two Plymouth boxing gyms, Scott Dann’s Boxing Gym and Hybrid MMA and Fitness Centre.
Although he has been putting hours in the gym and the ring, Glenn is somewhat philosophical regarding the charity about next month: “It is the first time in my life that I have taken part a sport in which you are entirely responsible for the outcome. It brings out an overwhelming sense of achievement, satisfies my inner adolescent and gives me peace of mind.”
Just like our other White Collar contenders, Glenn has set up a Just Giving page. If you would like to sponsor him please visit on https://www.justgiving.com/Glenn-Kelly1/
