and I wanted to raise funds for the charity," he explained.
Matt, who is an instructor at Burnham and Highbridge Karate Club,
held the event at King Alfred School where he was supported by
the group's members plus family and friends.

such a great amount," he said.
Matt and mum Julia thanked all those who have supported the fundraising.
