Bolton boxer Amir Khan will jab his recently-formed foundation into life at a Reebok Stadium gala dinner on Saturday June 14.
The Amir Khan Foundation, which has recently teamed up with Human Appeal, aims to provide support to disadvantaged young people both in the UK and worldwide.
The foundation’s first task is building a children’s orphanage in the deprived area of Kashmir in Pakistan.
Khan told a packed press conference: “The Amir Khan Foundation will allow me to give back to the community, help youngsters and kids from poverty stricken backgrounds and help kids who are disadvantaged both from the UK and abroad.”
Khan, who became a father for the first time last week, also believes that the foundation will enable him to be even more hands-on with his charity work.

The foundation also aims to assist communities and charities in need of support, be it a local football club needing a new kit or a community abroad hit by a natural disaster or crisis.
This black-tie gala dinner will be held at the Reebok Stadium, which is to be renamed the Macron Stadium in July, and will feature entertainment including motivational speeches from those at the heart of the foundation.
All funds raised at the gala dinner will go directly to the foundation’s work.
Individual tickets start from £50 with tables ranging from £500 to £1,000. There are also a number of sponsorship packages available.
