Please support St Mary's Amateur Boxing Club for Natwest Community Force funding
What does your charity/project do?
St Mary's ABC has been established for 70 years. Recently we have been raising funds to ensure St Mary's ABC stays within the local community. We are non-profitable organisation & need to raise funds to ensure we have a stable future & can continue to take our boys across the Nation in order to attend other clubs boxing shows. We train over 220 boys a week, offer guidance, coaching and competitive opportunities in boxing. This club is heavily involved within the local community & boxing world.
How does your charity/project support the local community?
Our organisation currently keeps the youngsters off the streets 7 days a week. We train them from as early as 8 yrs old through to adults. We encourage boxing within the local community irrespective of race, culture, belief, gender, the acquisition of physical fitness, self discipline, confidence and responsibility. We are looked upon as a family within Luton and are very well known across the nation for producing world champions, junior titles and even the opportunity to box for our country.
What do you plan to use the CommunityForce award for?
The Community Force award would be spent on ensuring our Minibus is safe to transport our boys across the Nation. As we are non-profitable club we accept donations from parents to ensure the minibus, is taxed, mot and insured and the standard you would expect. We cover so much mileage across one weekend so regular services are also very important not to mention fuel. We also have some girls down the boxing club and currently one changing room so we would like the opportunity to extend also.
