Yorkshire property lawyer fights to help knock out cancer
A Northern Irish property lawyer has managed to raise £1,000 for Cancer Research by taking part in an Ultra White Collar Boxing competition at Elland Road, Leeds.
Sarah McCann who works at LCF in Bradford had no previous experience in boxing before she took part, and was sponsored by colleagues and the firm in order to raise funds for charity.
However Sarah’s brother is a professional boxer and her dad, himself a former boxer and now a coach was on hand to give her ringside advice.
Sarah said: “LCF made a generous donation to be my sponsor on the night where I competed in front of 2,000 people against a well-matched opponent. I went three rounds and have a bloodied nose to show for my efforts, but despite losing, I had a great time and most importantly have helped in the fight against cancer by raising £1,000 for Cancer Research.”
“I couldn’t have tackled this challenge without the amazing support I have received from LCF Law, work colleagues, friends and family who have all been incredible.”
Julie Davis, Director at LCF Residential, the conveyancing arm of LCF Law said: “Sarah and hundreds of other people like her across the country are hoping to raise a staggering £2million for Cancer Research in a series of boxing competitions throughout the UK, and we are absolutely delighted to have sponsored and supported her for this exciting challenge.
“Sarah’s been with our firm for three years now and she has progressed into the role of conveyancing executive whilst also studying for her Chartered Institute of Legal Executives qualification. She is a very determined and hardworking young professional and I she definitely applied this same spirit when she got into the ring.”
