Local charity Baby Ava’s Support Foundation have announced Birmingham’s super-flyweight champion as its new ambassador.

Birmingham-born Kal Yafai is the current super-flyweight champion after winning the title in December 2016, and has pledged his support to Baby Ava’s Support Foundation by becoming the charities newest ambassador.

Baby Ava’s Support Foundation was founded after Richard lost his daughter, Ava, in May 2014. The charity aims to provide keepsake memory boxes to every bereaved family in the UK.

Kal Yafai said “I wasn’t familiar with the work of Baby Ava’s Foundation until Richard got in contact with me. Once I found out a little bit more about what the charity does, and how it helps parents cope with the grief of losing a child, I was delighted to become an Ambassador for the charity to help such a beautiful cause.

Baby Ava’s Support Foundation is such a great cause and is all publicly funded. I am proud to be part of such a fantastic charity, seeing them grow and helping more and more families.”

Baby Ava’s Support Foundation founder, Richard, said “We are delighted to welcome Kal Yafai to the support network on Baby Ava’s Foundation. It’s important we continue to raise funds for the cause and we believe Kal will provide a great support for us as an Ambassador, as has done lots of great work for us in the past.

Kal has really fell in love with the cause and has been great support watching us grow and develop. It is a pleasure to have him as an Ambassador for Baby Ava’s Foundation and we’re excited for our partnership in the future”.
