    Story

    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 5 nights every single week to run Epic Golden Gloves. We do this for the benefit of our local communities, and our gym is a sanctuary for many people in the Newark and the surrounding area.

    Esham and invaluable volunteers at Epic Golden Gloves manage to train our members by covering essential overheads primarily through a combination of subscription fees, and fundraising by hosting boxing shows for the public.

    At this stage, there is a great level of uncertainty around the impact that coronavirus will have on Epic Golden Gloves as we will still need to cover our overheads throughout the coming weeks and months, but with little to no income to do so. We have received phenomenal support to date but it is clear that the impact of KO Covid-19 is greater than initially thought and the time to re-open will be a prolonged one possibly three months.

    That is why we are backing the England Boxing “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 amateur boxing club in Newark that people can return to.

    Any donation great or small will be greatly appreciated

      We have received phenomenal support and we are overcome with the response and the level of support. It is clear that the impact of KO Covid-19 is greater than we initially thought, possibly three months. As such we have had to increase our campaign target to ensure we can meet the Costs to keep the Club open. We are working hard on funding through other sources to help the cause but ask if you can give any donation of any amount or if you are not in a position to do so to kindly share our Justgiving page it would be a great help. Stay safe all.
