The gym is currently used only in the evenings and at weekends – our aim is to offer our facilities and skills to a wider range of local people. Our current facilities are chronically out of date – there is no access for people with physical disabilities or limitations. St Paul’s has always been a community based club. We are growing steadily and want to build on this tradition to bring benefits to the wider locality – in particular to young people at risk and vulnerable young people and adults. We want to help make Hull a safer city by tackling head on the causes and consequences of social nuisance and crime.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
St Paul’s Boxing Academy needs to improve its facilities in order to continue the delivery of boxing based, and keep fit sessions, which promote health, fitness and social inclusion. We have secured a donor who has pledged to give £1 for every £3 raised from crowdfunding. Play your part in helping St Paul’s to develop even more people to become champions in boxing and in life. We work to develop peoples’ self-esteem, confidence and respect for others whilst improving their well-being and fitness.
Steps to get it done:
St Paul’s challenge and encourage people of all abilities. Over the past 69 years we have produced dozens of boxing champions including Luke Campbell, Hull’s Olympic gold medalist. It is the biggest boxing club in the country outside of London, has over 300 members including over 70 females, is the first Club to achieve Sport England’s Club Mark quality accreditation. We continue to work with people who we believe will become future UK, European and world champions.
