During these difficult times, we are all experiencing challenges that will affect many people’s health, social lives and livelihoods for a long time to come.
As one of the 950+ amateur boxing clubs in England who are run entirely by voluntary coaches, we give up an average of 4.5 nights every single week to run ASHFORD BOXING CLUB. We do this for the benefit of our local communities, and our gym is a sanctuary for many people in Ashford and the surrounding areas.
Our volunteers at ASHFORD BOXING CLUB manage to train our members by covering essential overheads primarily through subscription fees.
At this stage, there is a great level of uncertainty around the impact that coronavirus will have on ASHFORD BOXING CLUB, as we will still need to cover our overheads throughout the coming weeks and months.
That is why we are backing the “KO COVID-19” campaign, appealing to members of our local community to donate whatever they can to your local boxing club, to help ensure that when we as a nation have KO’d Covid-19, there is still an England Boxing affiliated amateur boxing club in ASHFORD KENT that people can return to. Any donation great or small is appreciated, and you can do so by following our Just Giving page below:
Whatever you do, however big or small, please help your local club to #KOCOVID19, and thank you from all of us at ASHFORD BOXING CLUB.
