A few months ago I visited Halewood Youth In Community Centre to meet those involved in the reopening of Halewood Boxing Club. It was great to see so many young people taking part and enjoying themselves.
Halewood Boxing Club previously functioned for over 40 years but has been closed for around 10 years. Thanks to the hard work of Youth Centre Management the club has now reopened and offers boxing classes for all ages on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
At the time I spoke to the Centre Leaders and the coaches about their plans to buy new equipment with the help of a Sport England Small Grant. I am really pleased to say that the boxing club has now secured a grant and will be upgrading all of their equipment.
It is clear that the club really want to make a difference to the local community by getting kids off the streets and into the youth centre. If you have a son or daughter who would like to join the boxing club you can follow the link above to get the details.
