Dereck Chisora presents the cheque

Following his side-bet with Dave Haye prior to their heavyweight title fight at West Ham United, Dereck Chisora  presented a cheque of £20,000 to the founders of David Haye’s charity of choice, the ACLT (African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust) in Central London.

The donation will go towards supporting the ACLT’s lifesaving work through spreading awareness and increasing the number of ethnic minorities on the UK bone marrow, blood and organ donation registries through national recruitment drives.

Haye is a patron of the ACLT which was co-founded by Beverley De-Gale OBE and Orin Lewis OBE after their son Daniel De-Gale was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1993.

Orin Lewis OBE said: “We are delighted to accept the cheque of £20,000 from Dereck Chisora on behalf of the pre match bet between him and opponent David Haye.  We’re sincerely grateful to them both.

“The generous donation will go towards securing further bone marrow, blood and organ donation recruitment drives throughout the UK in addition to delivering awareness campaigns throughout the year, to help save lives against blood cancer and other life threatening conditions which require blood and organ donation”.
