A community amateur boxing programme to support disadvantaged youths, people with mental health and learning and learning difficulties

by Mansfield Boxing Club in Mansfield, England, United Kingdom

<p>The Body and Soul Gym is a well known leisure venue that has been a big part of the Mansfield community. Over the years we have helped thousands of people across the area facing all kinds of issues:</p>

<p>- Young people</p>

<p>- Ex-offenders</p>

<p>- Women looking to learn self defence</p>

<p>- People with learning difficulties</p>

<p>- People with mental health issues</p>

<p>We are passionate about the power of fitness and how it can support individuals to transform their lives no matter what walk of life they come from and what issues they are facing.</p>

<p>Due to the pandemic the club has been hit hard since March, previously the club has been a private venture funded by the founder Roger Brotherhood but with reduced facilities under the new restrictions this is becoming harder to do.</p>

<p>The club has now made the decision to set up a community arm as it would be a great loss to the local area if this club was to shut. It has helped so many troubled individuals to turn their lives around and given them a positive outlet in a place that holds no judgement, and is open to all!</p>

<p>We are asking for your support to help us raise the funds to initially keep the club running, which will give us the time required to make this transition to a community venture. Any donation you can make would be a great help to us and the people support.</p>

Let's make 'Gloves not knives! Keep it in the ring!' happen
