boxing activity nights were delivered in Bridgerule. sported. then
hosted a community consultation evening to asertain interest in
creating a sustainable community club. A team of enthusiastic
volunteers came forward and committed to roles to help the club
become a reality.
The club caters for 7 year olds upwards, including people with
learning disabilities, running various sessions from 5.30pm to
