A STOURBRIDGE martial arts instructor hopes to raise more cash for a good cause by roping in people for a charity challenge.

Alex Reason, chief instructor at Dan Woodruff's Academy Martial Arts is staging yet another gruelling 'Battling Cancer - Battle Ropes Challenge' (Round Four) this Saturday (September 21).

Students from the academy will be tasked with keeping two sets of 'battle ropes' moving continuously for two hours in the fundraising feat which will take place at the academy in Bagley Street from 2pm to 4pm.

Anyone wishing to make a donation towards the fundraiser can do so online at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ross-reason.

Alex, aged 36, from Brierley Hill, who has lost loved ones to cancer, hopes to raise around £1,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support from the event which follows previous battle rope challenges.
