A cage fighter has donated hundreds of pounds to a children’s charity, which he managed to raise during a recent fight.

Andre “Soldier Ace” McIntyre took to the ring to raise £500 for Barnardo’s, Tanners Lane, Barkingside as part of the campaign Fight For Good.

A cheque was presented last week to the charity which helps to transforms the lives of vulnerable children across the UK.

Alongside Mr McIntyre on the day was fight promoter, Dave O’Donnell, who helped organise the event on behalf of UCMMA, at the Troxy in east London.

The Fight For Good events take place one month and donations are made to local charities from the money raised.
