Sherrington's Boxing Club is a community club in an underprivileged area of Birmingham.  The club relies solely on the goodwill of volunteers – coaches Simon Sherrington, Stuart Freeman and Steve Kennedy.  As they do not currently receive any grants or funding, new equipment and often rental of the facilities is at the expense of the coach and volunteers. 

In 2018, Sherrington's Boxing Club became affiliated with the Amateur Boxing Association and some of the children and teenagers now compete against other amateur boxers in country.  Since then, the club produced 7 titles from champions Billy Kennedy and Danny Lynch.

For as little as £2 a session, the youth of the area can use the club as a way of keeping off the street, keeping active and healthy, or dedicating themselves learning the sport of Boxing – whilst also learning valuable life disciplines.

Sherrington's Boxing Club are now seeking to raise £2,000 to provide much needed improvement to some the facilities and equipment at the club.  We would welcome any kind gesture of a donation and value the support of those in the community.
