Weʼre raising £15,000 to Refurb external area to enable more space for the kids to train. Currently there is no cover either to protect the kids from the elements.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Aylsham Boxing Club and its Volunteers provide an outline for boys and girls to come and learn some discipline, keep active and keep them away from the streets.
We are a completely non profit club and are struggling to take in those that want to join.
Unfortunately an application for a grant, to extend the club was turned so the volunteers are taking it upon themselves to try and raise funds in other ways.
A full refurb and extension of the club would take tems of thousands of pounds and we realise that this may be unrealistic for us to achieve.
Instead we are looking to replace the concrete flooring outside, and build a cover above to keep the rain off the children. We estimate the figure to be im the region of £15,000.
Any local business/suppliers that may be able to help achieve these goals at a cost price would be greatly appreciated.
We are also looking to hold a few fundraising events.
We have some good comversions with Aylsham High School and they are generously helping us to hold our first show im 6 years in Feb of 2019,
Along with the bouts there will an auction, a bar and fiod on offer. All proceeds being donated towards the club.
Details can be found on our facebook page and I will keep you posted regarding times and tickets soon.
Any boxing or football items/memorabilia, in fact anything that can be auction, to help our cause please contact me on here or messenger.
Thank you in advance to local businesses, shops and the general public for your help.
Best wishes, Rob Wright, Aylsham Boxing Club 🥊🥊🥊🥊

About the fundraiser
Aylsham, Norwich, UK
In an ideal world we would have a full extension but we want to be realistic as to what is achievable. A new floor and overhead shelter are needed. We are currently having to turn children away. This will enable us more space to raise the number of children we can accommodate
