  • During the event 1,000 martial artists will spar 100 one and a half minute rounds, with each fighter raising a minimum sponsorship of £30 each
  • Mr Ellis, 46, whose film credits include Pirates of the Caribbean and The Dark Knight, is childhood friends with Peter Felix, the event organiser and martial arts expert, and will be on hand to start the event proceedings

Quotations

Tony Penge, Contract Manager at Loddon Valley, said:

We’re extremely excited to have an Hollywood actor at the centre! His attendance will only add to what is going to be a great day. We love holding events that bring the community together and this charity sparathon is no different. We hope that Winston’s presence will generate more buzz and encourage people to donate to such a worthy cause.
