Frank Bruno Talks To Wandsworth
About his battle with mental health and his life in SW18 now
Frank Bruno MBE and former boxing Heavyweight Champion, will give a live interview to Hari Sewell, a social care director, on Monday June 6th at the Civic Suite in Wandsworth High Street.
Frank will trace his life back from his childhood as a local Wandsworth boy, to the ringside, the world of celebrity and his subsequent battle with bipolar disorder which resulted in him being sectioned in 2003.
Now recovered from his mental health issues, Frank’s story is one of a man whose spirit has proved itself bigger than his immense physical stature.
He was the darling of the British public in the 1980s and 1990s, but the turn of the millennium saw his marriage to Laura fall apart, and the onset of the personal troubles which ended his boxing career.
