Knockout help for club from building society

Posted onPosted on 22nd Nov

Mansfield All Star Amateur Boxing Club has received a £500 donation from Mansfield Building Society’s Community Support Scheme towards the purchase of new and high-end equipment.

The club, launched in 2019, is run completely by volunteers. Their aim is to improve mental and physical well-being, as well as reduce anti-social behaviour, through fitness and competitive boxing opportunities.

Head coach Rich Fox explained that the Community Support Scheme donation has made a huge difference to the club.

“This funding has helped us by allowing us to pay for essential fees so our members can enter boxing competitions,” he said.

“We’ve also bought new equipment, including uniforms, skipping ropes, gloves, bags and a gym upgrade.

“All of this has been crucial to the opening and running of the club, where our members love coming.”

Branch manager Carole Dallison was impressed by the community feel at the club.

“It was great to go down and meet everyone at Mansfield All Star Amateur Boxing Club,” she said.

“Straight away it was clear to see how welcoming the club is of new people. There were new member enquiries happening all evening.

“It was lovely to see the team work with a variety of ages, genders and experience. Everyone looked really proud to be part of the club.”
