James Clayton will box for Cancer Research UK.


A Weston town councillor will enter the ring to fight for Cancer Research UK.

Weston and North Somerset councillor James Clayton will take part in a charity boxing match in a bid to raise hundreds of pounds for his chosen charity.

James, aged 37, will take part in the Ultra White Collar Boxing matches and take on one opponent on July 7.

He said: “Cancer affects us all in one way or another. My partner’s dad was going through cancer treatment back in 2016 and this felt like a good thing to do – Cancer Research UK is a well-recognised charity.”

James, who is a councillor for the Bournville estate, is completing an eight-week training course to prepare for the match where he will face off against another fundraiser in three two-minute rounds at Weston Football Club in Winterstoke Road.
