KO COVID-19 CAMPAIGN
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 6 nights every single week to run “KEATESY’S BOXING ACADEMY ”. We do this for the benefit of our local communities, and our gym is a sanctuary for many people in England.
Our volunteers at “KEATESY’S BOXING ACADEMY ” 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 which we were set to hold our own in October 2020
At this stage, there is a great level of uncertainty around the impact that coronavirus will have on “KEATESY’S BOXING ACADEMY”, as we will still need to cover our overheads throughout the coming weeks and months, but with little to no income to do so.
That is why we are backing the “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 “LEEK” that people can return to.
Or if you are willing to give #onemoreround to #KOCOVID19 by launching your own fundraiser for “KEATESY’S BOXING ACADEMY”, your efforts will not go unnoticed if you tag us using “KEATESY’S ” and @englandboxingofficial (Instagram) @EnglandBoxing (Facebook) @england_boxing (Twitter) in your social media posts, to allow us to spread your hard work.
Whatever you do, however big or small, please help your local club to #KOCOVID19, and thank you from all of us at “KEATESY’S BOXING ACADEMY”.
