I am absolutely delighted with the announcement that March Boxing Club has received £1,000 worth of funding for new equipment.
The money comes following an application made during a recent visit to the club by Mark Abberley, the CEO of Boxing England, which followed our meeting in Westminster as part of my on-going campaign for better sports funding for Fenland.
Boxing charity the Central Society and Recreational Trust have approved the funding following a grant application made during Mark’s visit to the club.
It is great to see local clubs receiving national funding and March Boxing Club has followed Wisbech Boxing Club’s success in obtaining a grant from the same organisation two years ago.
The funding shows there is money available if local groups and organisations are able to submit applications and I’m grateful to Mark and his colleagues for taking the time out to visit March Boxing Club and for his support in helping them obtain this money.
I am aware that sports funding in Fenland has been lacking in the past and it is something I am determined to address.
