The owners of So Sweet and Kitemare Repairs in Westward Ho! are stepping into the ring for charity this month.

Two Westward Ho! business owners will be braving it in the ring to raise money for charity this month.

Peter Sawyer, 46, who owns Kitemare Repairs, and Tony Robinson, 51, who owns So Sweet, will be entering the boxing and kickboxing charity Fight Night at The Big Sheep on April 28.

The pair work next door to each other but, unbeknown to one another, both signed up for the same event.

Peter said: "I have a bit of a background in martial arts but have spent years not being hit; I am now having to learn to get hit and do the kickboxing.

"Tony has done nothing like this before and is doing boxing with only five weeks of training.

"We didn't even know each other had signed up until Tony mentioned he had entered into it.

"If we are going to lose our good looks for charity, we at least want to lose them making sure the fundraising works."

Money from the ticket sales for the event will split between Cardiac Risk in the Young and Breast Cancer UK.

"We want to raise as much money as possible and hope lots of people will come along and support us," added Peter, who is selling tickets from Kitemare Repairs in Westward Ho!

Tickets cost £12 each, with the doors and bar opening at 6pm and fights at 7pm. Buy tickets at thebigsheep.co.uk/events/details/charity-fight-night
