Thirty-two brave people will step into the ring on Tuesday week in aid of Pieta House and the Movember Foundation.

Participants have spent seven weeks training with experts of The Headon Boxing Academy, Irish boxing champions and Irish national boxing team representatives.

Pieta House provides a free, therapeutic approach to people who are in suicidal distress and those who engage in self-harm, and Movember is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health.

The ‘Blackhall Charity Fight Night’ takes place on Tuesday, 3rd December at the Talbot Hotel in Stillorgan and aims to raise awareness and funding of mental health issues in Ireland.

They have raised over €2,000 of their €20,000 goal.
