18 Aug Colchester Special Sergeant gets her gloves on for charity boxing match
Making the most of her weekend, Special Sergeant Justyna Nowicka is set to swap her boots for gloves in a charity boxing match to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
On Sunday August 20, S/Sgt Nowicka who is based in Colchester will be taking part in the Ultra White Collar Boxing event at Atik in Colchester.
Justyna decided to take part in the event to show her support to the charity. She said: “I am very lucky to be healthy and the only way I could show my support is to challenge myself and do something extraordinary and out of my comfort zone.
“Cancer is becoming such a common illness and it takes the lives of so many people. The only way of stopping it is by doing the research and finding the cure. I want to be a part of it, if one day I or any of my loved ones become ill, I will know deep inside me that I tried my best to help.”
