Grand Opening of Boxing Futures Community Hub

Boxing Futures Grand Opening
03 May 2022

ThisWeekinFM attended the grand opening of the new Boxing Futures Community Hub on 24 March 2022, a fresh space for a charity that aids the health of young people in need regardless of gender or ability, through non-contact sport and education.

Not only do they now have their own boxing ring of professional standard and a variety of high-quality gym equipment, but they also have an office and a classroom, as well as dedicated wellbeing areas allowing them to upgrade their youth service to provide an accessible safe space and the right approach for different trainees.

During the pandemic, fundraising was particularly tough. We spoke in length to Anthony York - co-founder with Andy Burley - about this prior to our Charity Boxing Dinner in 2021, and how Boxing Futures was able to continue helping the vulnerable.

With this new base of operations, the team are also hoping for sponsors and generosity to continue the expansion of their offerings across the UK, including the classes they already run in the capital. There are still tickets available for our Black Tie Charity Boxing Dinner on the 12th of May 2022 in support of Boxing Futures and DEBRA.

We spoke to some of the team to find out what they think of the new facilities and being part of Boxing Futures.
