Bruno KOs depression
FORMER world heavyweight champ Frank Bruno is taking the fight to mental illness with a new charity.
The Frank Bruno Foundation promotes noncontact boxing to combat depression and bipolar disorder – the condition he has battled for years.
During a launch event at Champneys Health Spa in Tring, Herts, Frank, 54, said: “The aim is to bring healthy body and mind approaches together to provide a holistic and enjoyable approach to supporting people with mental health problems.”
A host of fans and celebs such as Ian Wright and Ricky Hatton attended and raised thousands of pounds.
Champneys owner and event sponsor Stephen Purdew added: “Frank is as big a champion inside the ring as he was out of it.”
