Weʼre raising £100,000 to divert youngsters aged between 7-13 away from the street, and into the safe nurturing environment of a local boxing club
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

Gloves Up Knives Down is an awareness initiative to help prevent knife crime through it’s association with the Professional and Amateur Boxing World.
As a non-profit Community Interest Company, it is capturing the imagination of the public, the press and government alike as an effective way of diverting youngsters from the street and into a nurturing safe environment.
For the cost of £65, youngsters aged 7-13 yrs in identified areas of high crime rates, are given fantastic free boxing kits and non-combative training in their local boxing club.
By donating, YOU can make a difference to peoples lives-not only the young recipients, but also their peers, the parents, the social care workers and the communities.
GUKD, is guided by the principle of Preventative Intervention, as exclusively advocated by Professor Joana Costa MSc PhD, a Child Psychology consultant to the United Nations.
