Port Talbot boxing project benefits from Mentor support
30 Jul 2012
Sandfields and Baglan Boxing Club have been successful in
gaining a sported. Mentor to support the development of its
business and marketing plans.
It's a very exciting time for sported. in Wales, with our first
mentored project recently completing the development of their plans
and receiving a significant amount of sported. funding to aid the
project in changing young lives through sport.
Over the next few weeks sported. will be holding the initial
planning meetings with Sandfields and Baglan Boxing Club, so keep
an eye on the Wales
page of the sported. website and visit the Supported
Projects area to get an overview of the work that we are doing
with this Member and others.
The club support young people from the Port Talbot area, many of
whom come from highly disadvantaged communities. The project has
close links with the local police and makes a great impact in
countering antisocial behaviour and crime in the area.
Richard Thomas, Wales Manager for sported. said "I am really
excited by the work of Sandfields and Baglan Boxing Club. The club
is already doing fantastic things and we are looking forward to
building on the sport for development work they do with a huge
variety of young people from disadvantaged communities to ensure
the project has a sustainable future for the benefit of local young
