MEN and women are needed to take part in a boxing event to help raise money for charity.

Seconds Out (SO) boxing charity events are back and are now enrolling for the next contenders on its VIP black tie event, the White Collar Boxing charity show, on July 24 in Weymouth.

All participants will have the chance to gain eight weeks of free training, get fit, learn to box, be taught by professionals, and help to raise thousands of pounds for local charities.

No fitness or experience is needed and it is suitable for both men and women aged 18 and above.

SO boxing was set up to help local charities. The chosen charities for this show are Weldmar Hospicecare and Julia’s House.

Nic Bale of SO boxing said: “Now that the lockdown is easing off, we have been given the go ahead to restart Seconds Out charity boxing events.

“The prestigious show is a shirt and tie event and is no different than what you see on TV, so all your friends and family can come and cheer you on."

The deadline for entries is May 20 and spaces are limited.
