Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Atlas Community Amateur Boxing Club was established in 2018 as a result of requests from the local community. During the course of four years, the club runs daily boxing sessions, accommodating all abilities, ages and needs. We are England Boxing affiliated and work closely with women and girls, directly increasing the level of female participation in boxing. The club has grown over the course of four years attracting over a 100 members from all backgrounds. The Club is now looking to develop its programme by encouraging new and more frequent visitors by creating quality sustainable youth and community services and activities from a Youth and Community Hub. Construction work via an apprenticeship scheme was put on hold prior to Covid on a new building acquired by Atlas ABC. This premise, once complete, is a key asset in providing the community with a Youth Hub.

What we'll deliver:

  • A Local Community Hub- A safe space to socialise, relax and have fun
  • Out of school activities
  • Life skills workshops (construction, recruitment, crime awareness, finance and budgeting)
  • More sports activities
  • Educational Classes
  • Volunteering Opportunities

Why it's a great idea:

Youth centres and hubs are increasingly vital in engaging with the wider community and providing people with an opportunity to socialise and access key support services. The Atlas Youth and Community Hub, once complete, will become a multi purpose youth and community centre offering a range of services such as; Mothers and toddler groups, fitness sessions, coffee mornings. Alongside recreation and fitness we aim to offer Life Skills workshops such as employability support and volunteering schemes for the youth in coaching and administration.

Steps to get it done:

  • Repair the roof
  • Move classrooms
  • Install Electrical Points
  • Finish classrooms, add roof, doors and worktable. Paint classrooms
  • Paint roof and walls
  • Paint floors with anti-slip paints
