Local businesswoman Cathy Busby Mann of ‘Cathy Busby Catering’ and ‘Homemade by Mann’ is swapping her business suit for boxing gloves as she steps into the ring to raise much needed funds for premature and sick baby charity, TinyLife.
The 35-year-old is currently undergoing an intensive training programme at Monkstown Boxing Club along with 25 other young professionals from across the province in preparation for a white collar boxing event which is due to take place on Thursday night, May 8, in La Mon Hotel & Country Club.
Cathy said: “I am really enjoying the training and am looking forward to the fight night. I am hoping to raise over £500 for this worthy cause so any donations or sponsorship will be very well received at the cafe in the Antrim Civic Centre. Hopefully I will remain standing throughout my boxing match.”
Samara Prentice, TinyLife, said: “This is our second year running the TinyLife Big Fight and once again, it has been very well received.
“It is such a fun and exciting event to run; all of our fighters are enjoying the training at Monkstown and are really physed up for the night itself but most impotantly, it is set to raise a substantial amount for premature and sick babies born in Northern Ireland.”
It is anticipated that the TinyLife Big Fight will raise in access of £20,000 for the charity and the money will be spent on the wide range of Family Support Services offered to families of premature and sick babies.
