Thanks to funding from Maverick Stars Trust we are delighted to be running an 8 week Veterans programme starting on the 7th October at 1pm with the aim of providing support and opportunities for veterans of the British Armed Forces.
Many veterans encounter problems upon leaving the forces with poor mental and physical health and low self-confidence key amongst them. Some find it hard to adjust to a new and less structured environment, struggling to find their way.
This has contributed to a veteran suicide epidemic in recent years.
Increasingly, boxing clubs are becoming excellent community hubs and physical activity had a positive influence on mental well-being, increasing motivation and relaxing mood and stress levels.
Our programme offers 8 weeks of free boxing sessions starting on the 7th October but veterans or serving personnel are welcome to join at any time throughout. These will be delivered by veterans who are qualified boxing coaches and former or current amateur boxers and provide an opportunity to have fun and get fit with likeminded people. We provide everything you need to get started with boxing or bring your own kit.
