A pair of keep fit experts are urging people to pack a punch against ovarian cancer by taking part in a three-hour boxathon at Market Weighton’s Wesley Centre on March 7.

Sarah Roberts and Nikki Bakolis (pictured), who run boxercise classes at the centre, are also offering to get people fit for the big day.

Nikki said: “Get involved by entering or even just by coming along to watch, support and donate!”

She added: A woman dies every two hours from ovarian cancer in the UK, and sadly many of these deaths could be prevented if the condition were identified earlier. Over a third of women are diagnosed in A&E – when the condition is already in an advanced stage.”

The boxathon will take place between 11.30 – 14.30.
