Boxers Big Joe Egan and Robin Reid met Molly Collins and her family outside the Owl and Pussycat Lounge in Hastings yesterday (Monday, August 24).
They have been helping to raise money for her life-changing surgery in St Louis as she and her family depart today.
Molly, of Gillmans Hill, St Lenards, has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy which means she cannot walk unaided but the operation will help her to walk.
The boxers are in town for the auction at the lounge tonight in aid of Molly’s ‘Wish to Walk’ - with organisers placing ads across 1066 country.
As well as the auction, there will also be a cash raffle, live music and canapes and tickets are £5.
