Braving the boxing ring in the fight against cancer

Jason Thomas, Farécla Sales Manager for Scotland & Ireland is putting his body on the line in a bid to raise money for Cancer Research.

Despite having no previous experience Jason will be taking part in a charity boxing match on December 16 in front of up to 1,000 spectators as part of a event.

Jason has just over one week left of a punishing training schedule that has already seen him lose 3 stone(!), and he is training hard 4-5 times a week at the boxing gym with a pro trainer.

“The training has been gruelling but I am feeling fit and my confidence has improved,” said Jason. “I am a massive fan of boxing but have never taken part before and am mentally using professional boxer Anthony Joshua as my inspiration. A couple of family members were diagnosed with cancer and I wanted to do something to raise money for this important charity.”

Farécla is showing the company’s support for Jason’s efforts on behalf of Cancer Research by sponsoring the kit he will wear on fight night.
