Martial artists raise funds

Have your say

A CITY martial arts group has raised an amazing £14,000 for The Children’s Hospital.

Excel Martial Arts, based on the Holbrook Industrial Estate, Crystal Peaks, raised the cash after member Chelsea Sheldon was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.

The club held a host of fundraising events to raise the cash.

Liam Richards, of Excel, said: “Raising money for the hospital was very personal to us. We wanted to help Chelsea as well as the staff and unit taking care of her.”
