Two members of a women’s business network in Ipswich are swapping the boardroom for the boxing ring during a charity bout for children with cancer.

Samantha Brook and Victoria Sharp of the Avanti network will be taking part in the Double Trouble event at Liquid Nightclub in Ipswich on October 11, in aid of Clic Sargent.

The event, organised by Matt Brennan of the Suffolk Punch boxing club in Martlesham, will involve a number of other white-collar workers.

Ms Brook, who runs Suffolk Social Media and suffers with chronic fatigue, said she was looking for a way to get healthy.

“When I saw Matt’s advert on Facebook, I knew this was something I had to do,” said Ms Sharp. “One night for six minutes is just a moment in time compared to a child going through cancer for months, years of even life.”
