STUDENTS with learning difficulties from Derry's Tuned in Project will be stepping into the 'ring of inclusivity' at the City Hotel this Saturday to take on semi-pro wrestlers from Complete Anarchy Wrestling (CAW) in a bid to fund a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Disneyland, Paris.

The groundbreaking charity event, the 'Foyle Rumble', is not to be missed as the local students have been training hard since January for their chance to wrestle with and against the roster from CAW - a wrestling company based out of Letterkenny and Omagh.

So expect some shuddering body slams, stunning suplexes, Rock Bottoms and perhaps the odd People's Elbow in a night of guaranteed, explosive entertainment.
