Chairman: Tony Robinson
I was born in London.  At the time I was a salesman and later on I had my own business.  During this time I attended the Boxing Shows at the Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, and I met Bud Flanagan, Jack Solomons a boxing promoter and Alex Alexander, who invited me to join the Committee of the Bud Flanagan Leukaemia Fund and I have served the Fund for over 40 years, raising funds for research into Leukaemia to help fight this terrible disease.

I am now retired and I devote much of my time planning events for the Charity.

Vice Chairman: Martin King
After 20 years of working on the Boxing Committee, I was delighted to be asked to become Vice Chairman of the BFLF Charity by Tony Robinson, who is the driving force of this Charity.
I understand first-hand how dreadful this kind of illness is, and my own experiences help to drive my passion for this charity and the great work it does.
All funds and donations raised are 100% given to the charity. In life people face different forms of adversity in their careers and relationships, however the hardest fight you will endure is one of a life threatening illness such as Leukaemia. Having visited the Bud Flanagan Ward, funded by the Charity, at the Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton to see young children suffering from this condition, it is very emotional seeing how brave and resilient they are, it drives you to want to do all you can to help find a cure and improve the treatment.
The things we've already managed to achieve are truly beneficial and life changing for these sick children.

Geraldine Smith - Trustee
I have supported this charity for over ten years now as I have always been passionate about finding a cure for this awful illness. This charity holds a special place in my heart due to the immense funds they raise for the Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton to help ease children's suffering and for research.
I was asked to join the fundraising committee earlier this year and am hugely honoured to become part of such an amazing team of people who are all so passionate and dedicated to raising much needed awareness and funds to help find a cure.
