Joining the open day this Sunday will be Fen boxing legend Dave Boy Green of Chatteris who will get involved in a host of activities taking place including parents vs kids challenge, spa-ing and a medicine ball challenge.

Leanne Bostarini, of the club, said boxing was a great way to keep fit, get rid of stress and have fun at the same time.
