Workington’s Amateur Boxing Club has received another cash boost from Workington Town Council to help with the cost of their development of new premises in Moss Bay.
The Club moved from Moorclose in 2018 to a new site beside St Mary’s Church, and have been fitting it out with all the equipment required for a thriving boxing club. Presenting a cheque for £3,000, Mayor of Workington Cllr Barbara Cannon said ‘this club is thriving at a time when young people are often typecast as being inactive. The young boxers from this Club are going out as ambassadors for the town of Workington, and it shows what can be achieved.’
The cash boost comes on the back of a £1,500 grant from the Town Council last year, and is part of a funding agreement that will see a total of £5,000 put in to the club from the Council’s Youth Engagement budget.
