‘Storage Hunters star is a Jesse big hit with teen boxers’
US Storage Hunters star Jesse McClure delivered a knockout surprise at an amateur boxing club for teenagers this week.
The side-burned celebrity appeared at the run down Clayton gym to make a promotional film about the cash-strapped boxing club which provides a safe space and healthy focus for youngsters in the area.
After interviewing head coach John Brindle, Jesse threw no punches when it came to explaining to camera why the club needs extra funds.
“This is truly an awesome facility for young people,” says Jesse, “but we need your help! Whatever you can donate will go on a new venue, an upgrade of equipment and most of all you know this money is going to a good cause.”
The short documentary is being made free of charge for the club by Scott Dawson Advertising – as part of MD Murray Dawson’s ongoing Civic Pride initiative for Accrington and its surrounding districts.
It will be shown at a charity boxing event hosted by Mayor of Hyndburn Tim O’Kane in February.
Councillor O’Kane has chosen four charities to support during his mayoral year – Clayton Amateur Boxing Club, North West Air Ambulance, Riding for the Disabled and Rough Lee Nursing Home.
