New Astley Boxing Club was established over 30 years ago as a small boxing club that supported stable staff and the community.
The Club continued to grow each year and became one of the most popular clubs in East Anglia.
We have had huge success stories throughout the years and our latest one is with England Champion Boxer Demie-Jade who has furthered her boxing career and now teaches in Sheffield. Demie is ranked number 4 in the world and we are very proud of her.
This is one of many stories over the years. Each year we have held our own show to the general public which is always a huge success and helps raised funds for our club and we also have sponsors to help run the show.
Since March 2020 due to COVID-19 it is a shame we cannot train as normal and educate our young rising boxers, but during this pandemic we have continued to support them the best we can and give them some kind of normality in life as we train 3 times a week via zoom.
We cannot express how proud we are of their determination and motivation during this difficult time and we will continue to train this way until we can return to the gym carrying out Government guidelines to keep them safe, but to do this we need your support to enable our club has everything it needs in order for us to that. The club solely relies on club fees to cover the costs of the rent, insurance and training equipment. However during the past year the club has made no money due to the pandemic and therefore we need your support to keep the club going for another 30 years.
We would like to raise enough funds to support the following, the rent of the gym, insurance, England Boxing registration fees, equipment to provide the boxers can train safely, provide them with uniform clothing and overall provide them with the best gym possible and also provide a Victory Innovations® Electrostatic Handheld Sprayer which disinfects everything in a safe way to protect our coaches and boxers at all times.
Any support is very grateful to keep our club running for another 30 years.
Thank you in advance for your support.
From The Club Secretary and our 4 Coaches
