Amateur Lady Boxers pulling no punches as they get “Fit to Fight Cancer”.

A group of 16 ladies from mid Ulster will be going head to head in the boxing ring at the Elk Bar and Restaurant in Toome on 25th October in aid of Cancer Focus.

The ladies , who have been in training for the last 8 weeks, will lace up their gloves for this unique pink collar boxing event and take their friendly rivalry to the next level to raise money for the charity.

As well as training hard the ladies have been working hard to raise sponsorship for Cancer Focus.  Cancer Focus are your local cancer champion, here to help you and your family if you have cancer.  They help your community take positive steps to a healthier life, to lower your risk of cancer, and are determined to bring a more hopeful future by working for better public policies and funding ground-breaking research.

Tickets for “Fit to Fight Cancer” are priced at only £10 for what promises to be a night to remember with some eye candy for the ladies at the drinks reception and between bouts.

Three judges and referee Patsy Hurl will oversee every round.  Compere for the evening is Mr John O’Donnell with the main event followed by a disco and dancing late into the evening with Seamus Hasting on the decks followed by live music.

The fun begins at 8pm and tickets can be purchased at the Elk in advance or at the door on the evening.   Organisers Cathy McPeake and Johanna McCorley were amazed by the response to participate  and are encouraging  the public to come along for a night out with a difference – Pink Collar Boxing  – Think Pink!
