Dearne Valley local boxes her way to £3,000 donation for Cancer Research UK

News
12th December 2014

A Dearne Valley resident, Christy Winfield has pushed herself to the limits competing in a world-famous boxing event at Barnsley Metrodome, raising over £3,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Christy, 35 from Barnsley, a project manager at the Dearne Valley site of leading customer experience provider, Webhelp UK, undertook a gruelling eight week professional boxing training schedule in preparation for the Ultra White Collar Boxing event.

On the night, 600 spectators watched Christy hold her own in the ring against an opponent who was a stone heavier and 6 inches taller. WhatÂ’s more, Christy won with the judges announcing a unanimous win to the red corner.

Christy said: “This was such a fantastic event to be part of. Reaching the £3,000 mark in donations and tickets sold for the event, is unbelievable – everyone has been so generous, especially my colleagues at Webhelp. People that know me know I like to push myself to the limits, but this time I really wanted to do something that would benefit such a worthy cause.”

Fellow Webhelp Project Manager; Dan Wiernicki said: “We were all very impressed with Christy’s performance on the night. She was 100% committed to the cause and trained very hard for it. It’s great to see that everyone has been so supportive and geneours with donations.”

White Collar Boxing originated in the legendary GleasonÂ’s gym in New York in 1988. The first contest was held between Dr Richard Novak, a lawyer, and Dr David Lawrence, who held a PhD in English Literature. Since then, white collar boxing has been the fastest growing corporate contact sport in the world.
