The foundation launch, inspired by Matt’s experience of helping 9-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Alfie Smith in raising £50,000 for a life-changing operation, which would enable him to walk unassisted and pain-free, is set to be the start of a series of entertaining and informative fundraising events for the charity.
The celebs and other guests partied the night away alongside Matt at the drinks reception and dinner, which aimed not only to raise funds but also awareness of just who the foundation will help and how.
The Matt Haycox Foundation will support a variety of great causes including disadvantaged people, and other charities across the UK, Matt stated:
“The Matt Haycox Foundation aspires to raise funds to ensure cases like Alfie’s receive the financial backing and emotional support they require. My business success has given me the privileged position and the financial resources to support my charity work, but it has also given me a fantastic contact base to tap into, so we can ensure the foundation gets off to a flying start.”
