ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Eltham & District ABC is a non-profit boxing club that plays host to a haul of young, ambitions and dedicated amateur boxers. The club is run by one man, who gives up his own time to ensure that the youngsters that turn up – learn the important values of boxing. The club rarely looks to travel abroad, as the kids involved rarely have the means to do so. Anything the club needs financially is facilitated by subs paid by parents and the coaches.
Alex Howell, local business man – and friend of the club – is running twelve marathons in twelve months, to raise money for the boxing club – so that they can send their amateurs to Denmark and Uganda next year. He wants to help give the youngsters that learn there, a chance to experience boxing abroad, in the hope that they will enrich their own boxing journey and have memories to cherish forever.
