POWERDAY LONDON ABA PARTNERSHIP ENABLES BOXING CLUB REFURBISHMENT

Through our London ABA partnership, Powerday has enabled the refurbishment of a South London Youth and Boxing Club which provides sport and youth engagement services for young people in Southwark.

The Hollington Youth and Boxing Club was formed in 1893 and is supported by the Dulwich Trust, who are the main benefactors to the club and its activities, however the facilities were in urgent need of refurbishment and improvement.

This launch event marked the delivery of new showers and disabled changing rooms for male and females users whilst vastly improving the sporting facilities with the boxing gymnasium. The funding target of £140,000 was achieved through the London ABA partnership with Powerday, Hollington Youth Club, Dulwich Trust, and Sport England Inspired Facilities funding.

Keith Walters OBE and London ABA Secretary said: “Our partnership with Powerday to make our clubs better places to visit and sustain participation in amateur boxing has achieved another great outcome here at Hollington, on this occasion working with Sport England and the Dulwich Trust the club will continue to make positive changes to young peoples’ lives”.

Edward Crossan of Powerday who attended the official opening commented: “Three years ago Powerday took a major commercial and social responsibility decision to support and work with London ABA in setting out aspirational and visionary plans to improve the sport and its opportunities for young people. It’s clear that the redevelopment of the Hollington Youth and Boxing Club has been a success and Powerday is proud to have played our part in delivering a superb and well attended facility supporting young people”.
