Local youth clubs ‘Get Together’ and box clever

Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre, Derker Street, Derker are taking their training sessions out on the road across Oldham.

Thanks to the Oldham ‘Get Together’ Grants Scheme, young people from different areas of Oldham are now able to train with Olympic Amateur ABAE coaches, culminating in a get together for a celebration event at Oldham Boxing Club’s Derker premises. 

“This grant is a great opportunity for us to bring together children from different wards in Oldham who would not normally meet socially,” says Eric Noi, Director of Oldham Boxing, “and in this Olympic year, what better way to do that by getting them actively involved in the wider community of Oldham via the exciting sport of amateur boxing.”

Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre will be at Mag’s n Chad’s UFE, The Canon George Hall, S. Margaret’s Church, Chapel Road, Hollinwood OL8 4QQ from 6:00pm – 8:00pm on Friday 27th April, 11th and 25th May, and at S. Mark’s, Glodwick (time and date to be confirmed).
