We want to say a huge thank you and good luck to Ben Pyke who’s due to compete in the White-Collar Fighter Charity Boxing Competition on Friday September 21st at Bowlers Exhibition Centre.

After 8 weeks of gruelling training Ben’s ready to go, we chatted with him and he said: “I’m now in the 7th week of training which has been really tough but also really rewarding and great fun at times and has definitely taken me out of my comfort zone!”

He added: “I’m fighting for Forever Manchester as I believe it’s a great charity supporting local communities and helping put a smile on people’s faces.”

At the time of writing Ben’s already raised £495 to support community activity across Greater Manchester. If you’d like to support Ben you can go to his just giving page here.
