Floyd Mayweather Champions London Homeless Charity

Undefeated boxing champion Floyd 'Money' Mayweather has teamed with London charity, Working Action Group (WAG), to help raise awareness of homelessness in the capital.

 

In a bid to support the organisations work, the Mayeather team will be offering upcoming partners the opportunity to attend his upcoming unprecidented fight with Conor McGregor as V.I.P! 

 

Speaking on his contribution to the cause, Mayweather said, “Homelessness is something that our society should not tolerate and I consider it a privilege to be able to help.”

 

The fight takes place on August 26 in Las Vegas and each VIP sponsorship package is worth £20,000.

 

The funds raised from Mayweathers generous donation will be used to help the charity get its first ground-breaking double decker Multipurpose Mobile Homeless Unit on the road and in service.

 

The project manager of WAG, Juliet Ryan said:

 

“Our plan is to take a fleet of disused London buses and convert them into Multipurpose Units for the homeless. Each ‘bus’ will have the ability to serve up to 5000 hot meals a year as well as providing those sleeping rough with a place to shower, fresh clothes, access to the Internet, training and career counselling, and even sleeping pods so they can sleep on the bus in emergencies.”

 

The lucky V.I.Ps will also be granted seats at the ‘weigh in’ and behind the scenes access to the fighters.

 

After the fight Mayweather is set to return to the UK to take part in a fundraising tour to raise £75k to convert the first of Working Action Group’s ground-breaking fleet of Multipurpose Mobile Homeless Units.
