THE aunt of a teenager who died suddenly has launched an appeal in his memory to raise money for the boxing club where he trained.

Seb Morris, aged 14, who died in the family home in Creech St Michael earlier this month regularly trained at Taunton Amateur Boxing Club.

Lucille Morris said she is grateful for the positive support the club gave her nephew, who was a promising boxer and attended Heathfield Community School.

A total of £735 has already been donated to the online appeal - click here to donate.

Posting on the site, Lucille said: "Seb was a massive fan of boxing. He lived for it!

"He would train most nights and if he wasn't training he was talking about training!

"His second home was Taunton ABC and this is where he spent most of his time.

"He always said he was going to be a pro boxer like his idol, Anthony Joshua and everyone believed he could be, especially his coach.

"He invested all of his time in Seb and never expected anything in return.

"Taunton ABC has such a massive positive influence on all of the people that use it.

"The coaches are all there on a voluntary basis and they can only stay open through sponsorships.

"They gave Seb a place to go to do what he loved and encouraged him to be the best he could be. And he was, he had such potential and it was all thanks to them.

"Seb's family want to help keep Taunton ABC going to give other youngsters the chance to be the best they can be. They gave Seb their all and he would have been lost without them.

"Please help to keep this gym going! In memory of Seb and for all of the hard work they put in!"
