PHIL Moss certainly proved a hit with his staff while raising money for Children in Need

The 35-year-old manager at distribution company TDG in Stowmarket allowed his staff to punch him 100 times as he undertook a challenge to raise money for charity.

Mr Moss took up the challenge to collect £500 for Children in Need.

Rita Ritchie, an accounts administrator, said: "I've waited eight years for this. I am not nervous about hitting him, we just thought it is such a good cause."

But Mr Moss, who is an instructor in Ipswich in the 5,000-year-old Indonesian discipline of Kixa, was more concerned people might hurt their hands.

Mr Moss, from Combs, said: "We are able to take these blows to the body, I was totally confident and happy to be doing something for charity. I hope this money will help make a difference, it's something I really wanted to support."
