Marvin 'Le Marvellous' debut 2 July 2022
Stepping into the ring on Saturday 2nd July is Marvin ‘Le Marvellous’ Odillard making his boxing debut in a white collar boxing ‘King of the Ring’ event. Having never boxed before training with Boxfit for this event, he’s doing all this to raise vital funds for the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation. Why?
His good friends had little miracle twins recently. They had many ups and downs, whilst one of the twins received extra care in Southampton Hospital. They were rushed over from Guernsey with nowhere to stay. Luckily the PPBF were there to help provide a home-from-home for the Guernsey family. The flat, which is only a few steps away from the hospital, became a sanctuary for the family whilst they were going through the most stressful and worrying times. This flat is one of two flats that the charity provide, free of charge for Bailiwick of Guernsey families in need.
Being a Dad of a gorgeous young child himself. Marvin, who works at The Cornerstone and The Cock and Bull, really empathised with the family. He decided to ‘throw ones hat in the ring’ to help raise funds to go towards the PPBF flats to help other families in our community.
Marvin chose a boxing challenge because his Dad named him after the champion boxer ‘Marvellous Marvin Hagler’. He’s already a champ in our eyes. But needs your support with his challenge and to help him help others. Please donate if you can. Thank you.
