Faversham Branch Manager Takes on Boxing Challenge for Macmillan

Luke Tuffield, our Faversham Branch Manager, is going to be taking part in a men’s charity boxing show on 3rd December, raising vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Luke has taken on a gruelling ten-week training regime to prepare him for the three two-minute rounds in the ring. Luke is training five times a week and has revolutionised his diet, to get him to his optimum fighting weight for his bout in front of an audience of 1000+.


Luke said: “Cancer has touched my family more than once and the work the amazing team at Macmillan Cancer Support do is inspirational. Standing in a ring being punched for six minutes is nothing compared to what people with cancer endure on a daily basis.”


Since beginning his training, Luke has lost approximately 8kg. Luke said: “I’m in the best shape since my teens and boxing is definitely a hobby I will continue after the show in December. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and to the amazing team at Parkers, who are providing me with so much support. It is hugely appreciated.”


The Mens Charity Boxing Show takes place at the Kent Showground on 3rd December. Doors open at 2pm, and Luke’s bout is scheduled for between 7.30 – 9.30 pm. Donations can be made at justgiving.com/fundraising/luketuffieldboxing. Tickets can be purchased via Luke in our Faversham branch or at www.menscharityboxing.com.
