"Tommy was the special guest at the Bridlington Sports Awards in March 2017, even though it was less than two weeks since his latest fight. We had an audience of more than 200 people, aged from 6 to 76 and asked Tommy to speak to 10 minutes."
"He was brilliant, a natural with microphone and we had so many comments from people who found him inspiring. Honest, funny, entertaining and motivating, every single person in the room enjoyed listening to his stories.
Tommy was a gentleman, making time to chat to so many of the young people in the room and have photos with them.
It was the fifth year we have run the awards night and it was the best so far, and Tommy played a huge part in that.
I would recommend him to anyone organising an event like this."
