Jon is doing his bit to Knock-Out Cancer

Jon is doing his bit to Knock-Out Cancer

Leemic’s very own Rocky is set to take to the ring on Saturday 7th April to score some big bucks for the Christie, a specialist Cancer hospital and charity based in Greater Manchester.

Jon Kenny, Sales Advisor in our Stockport office, was inspired to take part in this worthy cause after a family member received some fantastic treatment from the Christie at the beginning of the Year. Since then Jon has undertaken a grueling training regime in order to prepare for the big night. Jon said of the event “I wanted to do something in order to raise some money for The Christie so after a bit of research I came across this white-collar boxing match and decided to give it a go. The training was tough at first but now I’m enjoying it and keen to get in the ring to get the match under way!” We’re keeping our fingers crossed here at Leemic and we will be cheering him on ring-side!

Treating over 44,000 patients each year, The Christie is a phenomenal cancer care organization and NHS foundation trust that carries out amazing work across the North West of England and beyond. The Trust is split in to four key area: providing care and treatment, research, education and additional patient services. The Christie is the largest single site care centre in Europe and has been treating people for over 100 years.

The night itself promises to be a fun packed evening consisting of twenty white-collar boxing matches in total and an Elvis tribute act! Tickets are priced at £20 each and all proceeds raised go directly to The Christie.

Date: 7th April 2018

Location: Usmania Banqueting Hall in Miles Platting M40 8EE.
