Supporting under-privileged children through boxing

Community was pleased to approve a donation to Liam Forrest to support his work teaching younger people in Brighton how to box.

The donation will be used to provide boxing lessons for under-privileged children as ‘preventative intervention’, which is a well known technique used to give younger people structure, a positive path in life and prevent them from getting into trouble.

David Weeks, Regional Secretary for London and the South, says:

“Community is immensely proud to be able to support this vital cause. I have seen first-hand the positive affect this type of scheme has on under-privileged children and young adults in the local community.

Boxing has been widely used for bringing a sense of discipline and routine to otherwise chaotic lives, and Liam should be commended for using his personal experiences to support others. We can’t wait to see the positive change achieved through Liam’s work and made possible by this donation”
