Fight Factory Wrestling hosts ‘Bodyslams to Cancer’ event in support of St Barnabas

16th October 2019

Fight Factory UK will be holding their sixth annual ‘Bodyslams to Cancer’ wrestling event at One NK Leisure Centre, North Hykeham.

 The event will take place on Sunday 20th October from 1pm and tickets range from £5 – £12 per person. All proceeds from this event will be donated to St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice.

The event promises to be an exciting show featuring a wide variety of wrestlers, all fighting to raise money for Lincolnshire’s local Hospice.

Hayden, a wrestler from Fight Factory Wrestling said:

“We support St Barnabas at our ‘Bodyslams to Cancer’ events because in 2012 my Mum was diagnosed with cancer for the second time and she was cared for by the Hospice.

The first of the Bodyslams events was planned so she could finally see me wrestling as she’d only seen video clips before. Sadly, she died before the show took place. So we decided to amp up the show to raise as much money as possible for St Barnabas and we have been doing it each year ever since.”

 Fight Factory Wrestling UK is a Wrestling Company based at the Dutch Courage gym in South Hykeham. As well as running events like ‘Bodyslams to Cancer’ throughout the year, they also train members of the public who would like to learn how to wrestle.

Becca, Director of Fight Factory Wrestling UK, said:

“We provide training and facilities to people across Lincolnshire who want to do something different and to learn about wrestling. As well as being a lot of fun and a great confidence builder, it’s also a fantastic way to get fit and healthy.

“We welcome people of all abilities to come along and give it a go. You don’t need any prior knowledge of wrestling, we can train you from the very beginning. Everyone is welcome at Fight Factory Wrestling UK!”

Mike Pastor, St Barnabas Hospice Challenge Fundraiser said:

“Becca and Hayden are incredible. They’re doing something amazing for the Hospice that involves the whole community in such a unique way. They inject so much energy and time into the success of their fundraising events and we can’t thank them enough.

“It’s only thanks to the courage and kindness of people like Becca and Hayden that the Hospice can continue caring for over 10,500 people in Lincolnshire every year.”
