Story

The Becket Gym has been the nucleus of boxing community in Cambridge for the past 5 years. The only boxing gym in Cambridge it has housed 100s of boxers of all shapes, sizes and cultures under 1 roof via our social inclusion policy and has demostrated an aptitude for producing national and british champions over the years. Whats more, all of this has been done with volounteers.

The coaches and comittee work tiresly to keep this non profit organisation running. Unfortunately the current premises in Mill Road is being demolished which leaves around 50 kids (4-15 years) and 80 adults without a place to train Which will undoubtedly have a negative affect on the community. We have to vacate the propery by September 23rd.

The comittee has been fortunate enough to secure another premises local to the current gym in Cambridge City Centre and have been given lifetime security, which is an unbelievable achievement for the gym, its members and volounteers. We have been given a moving-in date of 1st October, however before we can move in, the gym has to be renovated including soundproofing the floor and a wall. As well as purchasing a new boxing ring (made to measure) and gym floor matting. The danger is that we dont secure enough funds and as a result are unable to move into the new gym.

We are reaching out to our members, the local community and businesses. Any help would be much appreciated, and sponsorship oppurtunities are also available.

Thank you
